Tons of Pink on Tap for Annual ‘Jayhawks for a Cure’ Game
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Allen Fieldhouse will turn pink on Sunday, Feb. 9 against Oklahoma as Kansas women’s basketball hosts its annual ‘Jayhawks for a Cure’ game. Admission to the game is $3 for all attendees that wear pink.
Before the game, fans will have a chance to bid on warm-ups worn by the Jayhawks during pregame. The warm-up can be customized to honor a loved one who has been affected by cancer. Fans can bid on the customized warm-ups via an online auction that begins today and ends on Feb. 3. All of the proceeds from the auction benefit the Lawrence Memorial Hospital and KU Cancer Center.
Fans can submit photos of themselves, family, friends and loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer to be shown on the video board in Allen Fieldhouse during pregame and halftime. To submit photos visit the following link.
On gameday, fans will receive pink rally towels when entering Allen Fieldhouse while supplies last and have an opportunity to take a pink photo with Big Jay and Baby Jay. Photos are $2 each with all the proceeds also going to ‘Jayhawks for a Cure.’
Pink straws, cups and cotton candy will be for sale during the game at the concession stands with a portion of the proceeds going ‘Jayhawks for a Cure.’ Kansas Athletics will donate $1 for every person in attendance, while head coach Bonnie Henrickson will donate an additional $1 for every student at the game.
