Hagerstown Suns raise money for breast cancer group

July 24, 2008

More than 3,000 fans were at Municipal Stadium for the Hagerstown Suns' third annual "Pitching Pink" promotion on June 7.

After calculating revenues from the jersey sale and the ribbon sales, the Suns donated $4,539 to Breast Cancer Awareness-Cumberland Valley.

A majority of the funds were raised through the Suns annual "Shirt Off Our Backs" auction. The team wore special pink jerseys during the game, which were auctioned off and presented to the winning bidder immediately following the contest.

During the first five innings of the game, fans were invited to place a bid on each of the 29 jerseys available, and in the sixth inning the auction went live in the Hagerstown Trust Plaza.

The Suns also raised money for BCA-CV through the sale of pink breast cancer-awareness ribbons. The ribbons sold for $1 and were available at the ticket office and in the merchandise store throughout the first two months of the season.
