Breast Health Awareness Season Recap
As part of this partnership the Sky created a Pink ticket package which included a ticket to the August 7th game, a pink Sky t-shirt and for every Pink package sold, the Chicago Sky donated $5 to Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure. The money collected by Komen goes to education, research, training and screening to eradicate breast cancer.
The Sky’s 2011 Breast Health Awareness festivities also included, the Sky players wearing pink uniforms, shoes, socks and headbands, and the Sky encouraged all fans to wear pink in an effort to “pink out” the arena. At the game, breast cancer survivors were honored guests and a silent auction took place where fans had a chance to bid on the pink game jerseys, numerous sports experiences and autographed memorabilia from teams and athletes from the Chicagoland area as well as the WNBA. All of these proceeds were donated to Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure.
The Sky is proud to announce that through our efforts and with the help of the fans we raised $5,000 for the Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
During the off-season and next season the Sky will continue to partner with Komen on various initiatives and today it was announced that Sky owner, Michael Alter will be a member of the inaugural class of Komen Chicago Pink Tie Guys, an exclusive group of men making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
We thank you Sky fans and supporters in helping us as we continue to raise funds and bring awareness to this cause!
