WALLA WALLA — Are you tough enough to wear pink?
The Walla Walla Sweets, in partnership with Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center, are teaming up again in 2014 to present Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night. The promotion will be July 18 as the Sweets face off against the Kitsap Blue Jackets at 7:05 p.m.
“We have always received strong support from the community for Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night, and I believe it is because so many people have a personal connection to the cause,” said Sweets chief operating officer Zachary Fraser. “As an organization, we are thrilled to be able to partner with Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center to bring this event back in 2014.”
Sweets players and coaches will take to the field in custom pink jerseys, caps and wristbands to show their support for breast cancer awareness. Players will swing pink bats and Borleske Stadium will be filled with other special touches to keep the field awash in a sea of pink.
Each game-used item will be available for auction, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Providence St. Mary Foundation.
In addition to game-used gear, the Sweets and Providence St. Mary will once again auction off a game-day experience for two fans who will be coaches for a day, receive pink jerseys and caps, have lunch with Sweets coaches and general manager, present the Pink Night lineup card to the umpires, and join the team in the dugout.
“Winning the Coach for a Day auction last year was a great experience for me and my godson Sean,” said 2013 winner Brian Herman. “Sean had a great time meeting the players and spending an afternoon at the clubhouse. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Sean, and one that he will remember forever.”
