Campus to hold 'Pink Zone' game to raise breast cancer awareness

January 19, 2012

The Penn State Brandywine women’s basketball team will host Penn State Fayette at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11, in a game benefiting the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Pink Zone.

The WBCA Pink Zone is a global network of women’s basketball coaches dedicated to raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses and in their communities.

Admission to the game is free, and it will be played in the Penn State Brandywine Commons Building/Athletic Center Gymnasium. The Campus Bookstore, located on the first floor of the Main Building, is currently selling official Pink Zone T-shirts and will sell them at the game as well. Five dollars from every $15 adult shirt purchase and $2 from every $10 youth shirt purchase will be donated to the WBCA Pink Zone organization.

This is the first year the Brandywine campus will host a Pink Zone game. Previously, campus bookstores throughout the University have supported the Pink Zone games held at University Park through T-shirt sales, raising $26,000 last year, collectively. This year, the bookstores hope to raise $30,000.
