Women's Basketball to Hold "Pink Game" on February 6th
CHESTERTOWN, MD -- The Washington College women's basketball team will hold its annual "Pink Game" February 6th when the Shorewomen host Swarthmore at 6:00 p.m.
Proceeds from this year's "Pink Game" will go to Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC²), a non-profit organization that has provided more than $16 million in research funding since 2001 to highly qualified researchers and physician-scientists from 42 institutions including: the National Cancer Institute, Faster Cures, The V Foundation for Cancer Research, and the National Brain Tumor Society.
The Shorewomen will be selling t-shirts at the game to raise funds and are accepting donation pledges for every made free throw or every made three-pointer throughout the course of the game.
Also, fans at the game can text "ABC2" to 20222 to make a donation of $10. After sending the text, fans will need to reply yes to the follow-up text-message. A confirmation text message will then be delivered. Each person can text a donation up to five times. Donations will be added to their cell phone bill.
All fans are encouraged to wear pink to the game.
