Emory University will "THINK PINK" on Sunday, Feb. 21 when the
Eagles' women's basketball team hosts Brandeis starting at 2:00
As part of the THINK PINK campaign, fans attending the game are asked to wear pink to show support in the fight against breast cancer. Those in attendance will receive free Emory Eagles Think Pink shirt (as supplies last). Other festivities will include free food, giveaways and entertainment. At half-time, families that have been affected by the disease as well as breast cancer survivors, as well as researchers working to find a cure, will be recognized. The Emory athletic department will make a donation to both the Winship Cancer Institute and the Emory School of Medicine to assist in their cutting-edge technology in the battle against the dreaded disease.
In recognition of the "Think Pink" initiative, the Emory women's basketball team will be wearing pink uniforms that have been specially designed for the afternoon by Russell Athletic. This annual event is possible thanks to a number of corporate sponsors who played a vital role in the event including: Courtyard Marriott Executive Park & Northlake, Russell Athletic, the A&E Group, Emory Athletics, Sodexo, and Coca-Cola .
Admission to the game is free and donations will be accepted. Emory Eagles THINK PINK merchandise as well as Breast Cancer Awareness items will be on sale. All proceeds will go to the Winship Cancer Institute as well as the Emory School of Medicine Breast Cancer Research Program. For additional information on the events or donations please contact Emory Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing Angie Duprey at 404-727-6739.
