It's a PINK Weekend in 2019 with the Perth Wildcats and Perth Lynx!
Breast Cancer Care WA is thrilled to celebrate return of the annual PINK Game for Breast Cancer Care WA in 2019.
The tradition is now in its third season, and this year the Wildcats will be joined by its sister team, the Perth Lynx, in donning pink playing uniforms for a special weekend of basketball during October, the traditional breast cancer awareness month.
The Wildcats will wear pink for their October 25 game against the South East Melbourne Phoenix, and the Lynx will wear pink in their Saturday 26 October clash with Adelaide Lighning at the Bendat Basketball Centre.
Special pink merchandise will be available at both games with net proceeds coming to Breast Cancer Care WA.
Game-worn pink Wildcats and Lynx jerseys, as well as other exclusive pink memorabilia, will also be auctioned to raise funds, and fans will have the opportunity to donate at the game via cash, text donations or online.
"Our #breastfriends the Perth Wildcats and Perth Lynx have been a crucial support to us over the years,” said Breast Cancer Care WA CEO, Zoe McAlpine.
“West Australians all know and are familiar with the exciting game in October, and give their all to dress up, donate, and cheer on the these amazing athletes through some of the closest matches of the season!
“This year there will be an even easier way to help support Breast Cancer Care WA at the game - with text giving. We can't wait to see the Red Army turn pink, and are so grateful to the Perth Wildcats and Perth Lynx for getting behind West Australians affected by breast cancer.
“In 2018 we supported 1,093 West Australians affected by breast cancer. However, with more than 1,700 women in our state expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019 alone, the need for our services continues to grow."
Last year’s Perth Wildcats Pink Game raised $24,279 for Breast Cancer Care WA.
