Pace Basketball will play some hoops for hope this Saturday, February 9, as Pace Athletics hosts Play 4 Kay, formerly the WBCA PinkZone, the annual Kay Yow fundraiser for breast cancer research.
The Setters host the New Haven Chargers in a Northeast-10 Conference match-up with the women’s game tipping off at 1:30 p.m. and the men’s game at 3:30 p.m. The cost is $5 for a t-shirt with all of the proceeds going to the Kay Yow Fund, an organization that has raised more than $8 million to fight women’s cancers.
Roses will be given to all cancer survivors and patients at the door and attendees can donate a dollar at the door to have a name hung up in the gym. A Minute to Win It challenge featuring war of the roses will take place during the women’s and men’s half-times and the Pace Dance Team and Drumline will perform during the men’s half time. There will also be a Diamond in the Rough, and the fan who finds a diamond picture taped under their seat will win a $250 piece of jewelry from Twin Jewelers of Pleasantville.
