The Harvard women’s basketball will host its fourth annual Pink Zone game Saturday, Feb. 19 against Columbia at Lavietes Pavilion. All proceeds from the event benefit the Kay Yow WBCA Cancer Fund. The Harvard College Women’s Center will be on hand with informational table, while the Crimson will have t-shirts, trivia, promotions and prizes throughout the night.
All fans wearing Pink will receive free admission to the game. Pink t-shirts will be available for a $5 donation in the lobby throughout the game. For every three-point basket Harvard makes, the cheerleaders and dance team will throw out three pink t-shirts into the crowd.
There will be several ways for fans to help support the WBCA Kay Yow Cancer Fund that week. At the game, all proceeds from the Cambridge Trust Bounce 4 Bucks will be designated to the charity, while the winners will receive prizes donated by J.P. Licks. Fans are asked to make a $1 pledge to receive a raffle ticket for a one-of-a kind 2009-10 Harvard bench chair signed in pink by the 2010-11 team and coaches. All pledges will be hung in the gym throughout the game. A pink basketball used throughout the games’ promotions and signed by the team and coaching staff will be auctioned off on GoCrimson.com/Auctions.
All fans are invited to attend an autograph session after the game where free team photos will be provided.
Please join the Crimson and help support the fight against breast cancer!
