The Westminster College women’s and men’s basketball teams and the Swing for Life Foundation present "Pink in the Paint," a benefit for breast cancer awareness, Saturday, Jan. 31, in the Dolores Dore Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center. The "Pink in the Paint" benefit games will start at 5:30 p.m. for the women’s team, and 7:30 p.m. for the men’s. Both basketball teams will play against Lewis-Clark State. During the games, coaches will sport pink polo shirts, the women will wear pink jerseys and the men will wear pink warm-ups. Attendees of the events are highly encouraged to wear pink to support the cause. The Swing For Life Foundation will honor breast cancer survivors during both halftime shows. If you are a survivor, or know someone who would like to be a part of this special celebration, contact Bree Riet at (801) 534-1933 or Kathy Howa at firstname.lastname@example.org . Drawings and auctions will be held during the games with proceeds going directly to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. During the last Swing For Life event at Westminster, more than $1,500 was raised for the institute. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 5-12 and $2 for non-Westminster students. Donations are also welcome. For more information on the Swing For Life Foundation, visit http://www.swingforlife.org .
