Women's basketball raises over $200 at "Pink Night"

WEST PALM BEACH – The Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) women’s basketball team hosted “Pink Night” on Wednesday, January 10th when they played Florida Memorial in the Rubin Arena.

Pink Night was presented in association with The Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race for the Cure, an event that the entire women’s basketball team will be participating in on January 20th.  PBA will take part in the one-mile Fun Walk event, which takes place in downtown West Palm Beach.  Other events scheduled on the same day include a 5K run for both men and women and a 5K co-ed walk, along with activities for children.

Fans who attended the women’s basketball game came out in pink attire, and were invited to financially donate to the search for a cure for breast cancer.  All proceeds from Wednesday’s ticket sales was also joined with the public donation and given to the foundation.  Two fans also went the extra mile in their bidding for silent auction items, winning bids for an official PBA game jersey and a basketball signed by the entire women’s basketball team.  Between the game proceeds, public donation and silent auction, well over $200 was raised for the Koman foundation.

The Sailfish gave the fans in attendance an exciting game to watch as well, as they beat Florida Memorial 66-42.
