Members of the Oceanside Generals were thinking pink on Friday as they took part in a fundraiser for breast cancer.

Parksville Pharmasave owner Tammie Toriglia said the team got on board, wearing special pink jerseys in the month of October to raise awareness.

On Friday, team members were on hand at the pharmacy to both sell Vancouver Canucks calendars as a fundraiser for Canucks Place, a palliative pediatric hospital facility.

Canuck Place is recognized globally as a leader in pediatric palliative care sharing knowledge, expertise and research regionally, nationally and internationally to assist in the further development of best practices in this field.

Anyone who bought a calendar from the team members Friday was also handed a pair of tickets to this coming Sunday’s Generals Game in Oceanside Place.

Toriglia noted there is one of the special pink jerseys on display at both the Parksville and Qualicum Beach Pharmasave outlets, which are being sold off in a silent auction, with the winning bids announced at Sunday’s big game.
