The pink ice is melting and the pink flags have come down on Main Street after the main push for Paint the Town Pink capped with Saturday’s annual Paint the Rink Pink game, but the push to fight cancer isn’t over.
Paint the Rink Pink followed tradition and sold out once again last weekend.
“It went really good, sold out, which is always what we want,” said Kelsey Klapperick, who works in community relations for the Austin Bruins said.
