Bowersox performed as part of the team's "Pink In The Rink" promotion, which raises money and awareness for breast cancer. The promotion spans two games — the Walleye beat Evansville 7-1 on Saturday and hosted Trenton at 5:05 p.m. today.

Bowersox, an Elliston, Ohio, native, sang the national anthem hours ahead of a concert at the SeaGate Convention Centre with Monte Mar in a concert that benefits Toledo School for the Arts.
