The Lake Superior State hockey team will host its eighth-annual ‘White Out’ domestic and sexual violence awareness night inside Taffy Abel Arena on Friday January 12th when the Lakers take on the Ferris State Bulldogs at 7:07 p.m.
The ‘White-Out’ night stems from the White Ribbon Campaign which was formed in the early 1990’s by a group of men in Toronto, Canada with the purpose of ending domestic and sexual violence against women.
In recent years, Lake State has teamed up with the Diane Peppler Resource Center and several agencies in the local community to create the Sexual Violence Prevention Team of the Eastern Upper Peninsula.
The goal of the ‘White Out’ night is for Laker fans to wear as much white as possible to bring awareness and help end domestic and sexual violence. This year, through donations and community support, the DPRC and SVP team has made it possible to give away 1,000 free t-shirts at Friday’s game.
