Saturday night, fans, students and faculty watched the Fredonia boy's hockey team turn the rink pink.

In Steele Hall on January 21, the 11th annual Pink the Rink charity game took place.

This year the event raised over $9,000 for the American Cancer Society of Western New York. Overall the total amount raised for the event is over $75,000. The crowd of nearly 800 paid between $7 and $2 for tickets which was put toward the donation.

The Blue Devils had a strong victory against Post University winning 15-1.

For each Pink the Rink match the Blue Devils have donated pink hockey jerseys and socks. The jerseys have the names of loved ones, groups, and others in their fight against all kinds of cancers.

I managed to talk to a few of the fans who were taking part in the game.

I first interviewed Jessica Kessler who was there with her sisters from her sorority she is a part of, Sigma Gamma Phi.

Jessica stated "I think that it is an incredible experience to watch the community come together to support and raise money for breast cancer."

It's safe to say that these kind of charity events really make an impact on the lives of others.

Another fan I interviewed was Daniel Luong who plays saxophone for the band. "It's great. I have played for this event before and it's always very exciting."

Overall the game was very exciting. If you're unable to attend the game there is also an option to watch online.

There were three total fights in the match and they were broken up quickly. The main fight was when Fredonia's goalie ended up being targeted and hit during the match.

Another interesting part of the match was when the puck flew into the stands and managed to hit a girl. She was not hurt badly and laughed about it after. She also got to keep the puck.

To keep the fans riled up staff were giving out free pizzas and shirts. It was a great way to make the game more enjoyable.

Overall the game was a great success and I'm sure next year's game is going to be even better.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
