Club News- Toronto Buccaneers- Pink Ladies Day (June 25) + Junior Boys Coach Announced

June 25th, 2016 the Toronto Buccaneers RFC will be holding their annual PINK LADIES DAY fundraiser.  For the past several years the Bucs select a home game and dedicate both their matches to breast cancer awareness.  All men’s teams wear a pink rugby sock to show their support on field.  We strongly encourage all club members to bring out their Mom, girlfriend, wife, daughter, etc., as honoured guests for the day!  
The Buccaneers 1st and 2nd men’s teams will be hosting Bay Street RFC at 1:30 and 3 pm, at Sunnybrook Park, 1132 Leslie Street, Toronto.
At the field, club member and sideline donations are accepted to help raise funds.  After the matches there is a fundraiser raffle & social held at the Leaside Pub, 190 Laird Ave, Toronto, starting at 5 pm.  Thanks to generous donors we’ll have great prizes up for grabs and sell raffle tickets for chances to win.  
We ask all club member’s wear a pink shirt to the field June 26.  
Last year we raised $2,000 for ReThink Breast Cancer and over the past several years we’ve raised over $10,000 for the great cause.  Make sure you’re there, bring a guest, and let’s beat last year’s total!
