SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The Shreveport Mudbugs have given their ice rink a new look to kick off their "Pink out the Pond" campaign.

"It's more than pink. We have painted the ice pink. We have pink T-shirts, this and that," said Jason Campbell, operations director.

"But it's more than that. We're more than that. We're here to raise awareness, raise some funds and bring a community together."

The gathering is happening from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today, Oct. 19, at Hirsch Memorial Coliseum. 

The event will give people an opportunity to meet the players, see the pink ice rink and buy T-shirts. 

Part of the proceeds from the T-shirt sales will go to Susan G. Komen North Louisiana

There also will be dinner plates from Rotolo's available for $8 each. 

All of this is to help get the word out about breast cancer.

This is leading up to a 3-game weekend for the Mudbugs.

Before the game Sunday at 2 p.m., there will be a Skate for the Cure. People will be able to skate on the pink rink. The cost is a $5 donation. That money also will be donated to Susan G. Komen North Louisiana.
