Everett, Wash. - The Everett AquaSox announced today that they are partnering with the Providence Comprehensive Breast Center for Pink at the Park at the Everett AquaSox-Spokane Indians game on Friday, June 27. The event will celebrate women's health, raise awareness and proceeds will benefit the Breast Center.
AquaSox players and coaches will be wearing pink jerseys on the 27th, which will be autographed and auctioned off during the game. There will be face painting and hair painting available in the concourse, an information fair on women's health as well as a raffle for several gift baskets. Proceeds from all of these elements will go to the Providence General Foundation's Comprehensive Breast Center Fund to help raise awareness for local breast cancer detection and treatment.

The funds will be used to support our local Breast Center and the patients we serve. We're grateful for this generous support, said Gayle Jago, Manager of Providence Comprehensive Breast Center.
