SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team will be playing host to York College of Pennsylvania on Saturday, October 17 in what is sure to be a fierce Capital Athletic Conference matchup, but the Sea Gulls will also be fighting for another cause as they raise awareness for breast cancer.
The team will be holding its third annual Pink Day game on Saturday afternoon during its matchup against York to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation and raise awareness for breast cancer.
During the contest, the team will be raffling off three baskets filled with Salisbury gear, as well as two blankets. One raffle ticket costs just $1 and an arm-length of raffle tickets will cost $5. All proceeds gained during the raffle will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer.
Those who are not interested in participating in the raffle, but would still like to contribute to this great cause, can bring a check to the game written out to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and drop it off at the entrance of the SU Soccer Complex where the raffle tickets can be purchased.
The Salisbury women's soccer team, which will wear pink warm-up jerseys for every home game in October, also encourages everyone attending the game on Saturday to wear pink to support the cause. The match is set to begin at 1 p.m.
