Indiana’s annual Breast Health Awareness night is highlighted by the team’s pink uniforms. For the seventh year in-a-row, Fever players will wear special-order pink uniforms produced by adidas which will be auctioned for charity immediately after the game.
Immediately following Friday’s contest, the seventh-annual Breast Health Awareness Live Auction features every player’s game-worn pink jersey among other autographed items for bid to benefit the Community Health Network Foundation’s Oncology Patient Assistance Fund. The entire Fever team and coach Stephanie White will assist with auction proceedings that also include pink shoes; autographed photos; and other autographed items from Fever players.
Over the past six seasons, Indiana Fever Breast Health Awareness auctions have raised over $170,000 for Community’s cancer patients.
