TACOMA, Wash. — The Tacoma Rainiers, in partnership with Carol Milgard Breast Center (CMBC), are proud to announce the details of their seventh-annual ‘Pink at the Park’ event this Sunday, August 13 at Cheney Stadium.
The event serves as an avenue for the Rainiers and CMBC to raise money to fund mammogram screenings for medically under served women in the South Sound region.
“We are grateful to the Tacoma Rainiers for this continued partnership,” Carol Milgard Breast Center Bridging Care Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Witte said. “This event helps us to continue to provide services to the underserved population in our community.”
Gates at Cheney Stadium will open at 12:00 p.m. PT, kicking off this year’s Pink at the Park festivities. The first 3,000 fans through the gates will receive a free pair of pink sunglasses, courtesy of CMBC.
Pregame activities continue with video testimonials from patients who have successfully battled and defeated breast cancer and the formation of the ‘Circle of Hope’. This year will also feature videos from CMBC patients, staff and survivors regarding the importance of screening mammograms as well as the importance of funding to help the underserved population in our community.
Pink-themed specialty jerseys worn by Rainiers players and coaches during the game will be autographed and auctioned off as part of a live auction held along the third base line of the field immediately following the conclusion of the game, as well as through a silent auction during the game accessible through http://www.rainiersauctions.com. Proceeds from the auction will go directly to CMBC in support of the organization’s continued efforts to provide sustainable breast health services for all women in the region.
“The mission of the Carol Milgard Breast Center is to provide sustainable breast health services to all women in our community,” Carol Milgard Breast Center Philanthropy Coordinator Barb Fox said. “Thanks to the funding from this annual community event, the breast center is able to raise awareness about breast cancer detection and continue to provide outreach to our underserved community which include financial assistance.”
