PREVIEW: Women's Basketball Set for Seventh Annual Pink Game
01.24.14 |
Lebanon Valley will host its seventh annual Pink Game Wednesday, Jan. 29, at 6 p.m. when women's basketball takes on conference foe Widener.

Since 2007, LVC has held the Pink Game in support of breast cancer awareness. For one evening, the team wears custom-designed pink jerseys and asks all in attendance to wear pink. The event aims to raise awareness of breast cancer from its detection to treatment and prevention. Prizes and giveaways will be featured throughout the game and each jersey is sold in a silent auction, with all proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society of Lebanon and the Genetics Program at the Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute.

The pink jerseys have garnered a number of bids thus far during the online auction stage on GoDutchmen.com. The final bids, which will close online at noon on gameday, will serve as the opening bids in the live silent auction that evening. Additionally, special commemorative pink t-shirts will be available for sale.

"Our team is excited to partner with our community to make the Pink Game a record-setting night," head coach Todd Goclowski said. "We hope to establish a new attendance record for an LVC basketball game and ask all our fans to come out and have some fun for this incredible charity event. Fans can win some terrific prizes and even have a chance to shoot for a new car. It's going to be a great game and atmosphere. We encourage all our fans and friends to show up in pink and help us in the fight against breast cancer."

Fans attending the game are reminded to arrive early with a sell-out crowd expected. There is no admission charge for the game, but donations will be accepted to benefit the ACS and PSH Cancer Institute. A free shuttle will run from remote parking lots on LVC's campus before and after the game (click here for directions and parking).

Returning again this year is a chance for one lucky fan to win a new car courtesy of Frederick Chevrolet in Lebanon. During the game, a fan will be chosen at random to sink a half-court shot at halftime for the chance to drive away with a new set of wheels. Additionally, the LVC Dance Team and Marching Band will be on hand to make it a one-of-a-kind atmosphere.

The American Cancer Society has worked relentlessly for 100 years to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. ACS strives, with millions of supporters worldwide, to help people stay well, get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.

The Penn State Hershey Medical Center is committed to enhancing the quality of life through improved health, the professional preparation of those who will serve the health needs of others, and the discovery of knowledge that will benefit all. Specifically, the Genetics Program plays a key role in breast cancer detection and awareness.

Representatives from each organization will be on hand to accept ceremonial checks from team supporter Jeanne Arnold and Coach Goclowski.
