October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Seminole Soccer team is doing their part to raise awareness by holding a `Pink' game to raise money to support the cause. The Seminoles will wear special pink Nike jerseys during Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.
Fans are encouraged to come out and support the cause as 75 percent of the proceeds will stay right in Tallahassee to benefit the Tallahassee Memorial Sharon Ewing Walker Breast Cancer Health Center, while 25 percent of the funds will go the Kay Yow Foundation.
Donations will be accepted at the gate, while fans can go online at Seminoles.com to bid on the pink jerseys that will be worn during Sunday's game against Miami. The auction runs through 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8. Those fans giving over a $10 donation will receive a t-shirt courtesy of the Tallahassee Memorial Sharon Ewing Walker Breast Health Center, T-Formation and FOX 49 WTLH. A limited number of pink pom-poms will also be provided to fans courtesy of FOX 49 WTLH.
