SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team will host the University of Mary Washington on Saturday as part of this year's Homecoming festivities, but more importantly will be contributing to a good cause by raising breast cancer awareness with its 6th annual Pink Day. The annual tradition helps support the Susan G. Komen Foundation which helps raise awareness for breast cancer while helping fund continued research.
Before and during the first half of Saturday's game, the team will be raffling off two baskets. One basket will include Salisbury University gear while the second basket will be "Eastern Shore" themed. One raffle ticket will cost $1 and all proceeds will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help continue the fight against breast cancer.
Those who are not interested in participating in the raffle but still wish to contribute to the cause may bring a check to the game written out to the "Susan G. Komen Foundation" and drop it off at the raffle stand.
As per tradition, the team will wear pink warm-up shirts before Saturday's game and again when it hosts York College of Pennsylvania on October 24. Salisbury would like to encourage anyone planning to attend Saturday's game to also wear pink to help show their support. The match is set to kick off at 2 p.m.
