Saturday, July 14, at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville marks the third annual PUMA Project Pink Night for the Boston Breakers. The Breakers players will sport pink jerseys to raise awareness of breast cancer. Signed pink player jerseys will be auctioned off through a silent auction held during the game. The auction begins at kickoff and ends in the 80th minute of the game. Fans can bid on a number signed pink jerseys to raise money for the Making Strides Aganist Breast Cancer charity.
"It's really awesome what (PUMA) is doing. It's a fun way to get people involved, especially kids, when you're wearing pink. A lot of kids out there don't know what pink means, and it's a good way to let kids know and one more person know what breast cancer is and how it effects people's lives, and at the same time raise money, it's just an awesome initiative that PUMA has done," Breakers captain Leslie Osborne said. "It's pretty special, and I love that the athletes are the ones who are showing it off."
All of the players' jerseys will be auctioned off Saturday. In addition to our auction at Saturday’s game, we will hold an online auction for you to bid on more Project Pink player jerseys, ones of Leslie Osborne, Heather O’Reilly, Cat Whitehill, Kyah Simon, and Tameka Butt, beginning Monday, July 16 at 10 a.m. ET through Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. ET. Email your bids to Gary Beatty at firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll be able to keep track of your bids on our website once the auction begins. You can still bid on those players’ jerseys at the game. There will be one extra jersey for each previously mentioned player that will be made available for our online auction.
You can also make a difference and help support the fight against breast cancer by tweeting the hashtag #projectpink on Twitter. PUMA will donate $1 for every
#projectpink tweet! For more information, be sure to visit puma.com/projectpink and stop by the fan zone Saturday at the game to get a free PUMA cat temporary tattoo or get a piece of your hair colored pink for the cause.
"Our fans, Boston fans, are awesome. They love it. They love what PUMA is doing. It's fun and easy to do," Osborne said of the hashtag initiative. "It's funny how already people are doing it, so it's spreading the word even more. I want to raise more money than we did last year and the year before."
