The Indiana Fever will conduct a Bright Pink Plaza Party on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 6, to encourage all fans to live proactively and provide education for breast and ovarian cancer health and learn risk reduction and prevention methods. A Brighten Up™ Educational Workshop begins at 4:30 p.m. in the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Entry Pavilion, followed by a plaza party featuring Fever players from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., on the Pennsylvania Street Plaza.
The Bright Pink Plaza Party highlights Fever activities as part of the WNBA’s Breast Health Awareness Week. Indiana’s BHA agenda is capped when the team wears pink uniforms on Friday, August 8 against the Washington Mystics on Breast Health Awareness Night presented by Community Health Network. For the fifth year-in-a-row, Fever players will wear special-order pink uniforms produced by adidas which will be auctioned for charity immediately after the game.
The Fever hosts the Mystics in a matchup of teams vying for WNBA playoff positioning. Tipoff is 7:00 p.m., doors open at 6:00 p.m. Fans are encouraged to #WearPink in support of breast health awareness. The evening includes a parade of breast cancer survivors during halftime. All seats will be adorned with a pink rally towel courtesy of CHN. Get a specially priced ticket in the lower level for only $15 at FeverBasketball.com.
On Wednesday, the 20-minute Brighten Up Educational Workshop conducted by Bright Pink takes place prior to the plaza party with music, pink balloon dedications to honor loved ones impacted, fitness exercises, prizes and opportunities for autographs with Fever players. Bright Pink’s mission is to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. The first 100 people to register will receive a custom designed Vera Bradley bag, courtesy of Karen Pence’s Indiana First Lady’s Charitable Foundation and Vera Bradley along with two complimentary Fever tickets, while attending the Brighten Up Workshop.
Immediately following Friday’s game, the fifth-annual Breast Health Awareness Live Auction features every player’s game-worn pink jersey among many autographed items for bid to benefit the Community Health Network Foundation’s Breast Health Fund. The entire Fever team and coach Lin Dunn will assist with auction proceedings that also include pink game-worn shoes; autographed photos; other autographed items from Fever players, a variety of “experience” packages with Fever players/coaches; a cooking “experience” package with Coach Dunn; and a complimentary 20-person suite to the Fever’s final regular season game on Aug. 16.
