On October 20th, HRFC will be holding the 2018 Harrisburg Rugby PINK OUT to Give Breast Cancer the Boot! A charity day in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, benefiting PA Breast Cancer Coalition.
Location: Memorial Park, Highspire
HRFC has a home doubleheader; Women vs Whitehorse at 11am followed by Men vs Media at 1pm. The games will be played with special breast cancer game balls, one to be raffled off and the other will be donated to PA Breast Cancer Coalition. To look the part, HRFC will use the donated bras to decorate our spectator ropes (then donate them to PA Breast Cancer Coalition to be included in their Boatload of Bras fundraising event).
To raise money for PA Breast Cancer Coalition during this event, HRFC will be selling special PINK OUT t-shirts and selling raffle tickets, all net proceeds benefiting PA Breast Cancer Coalition.
The Raffles are planned for our social at Tattered Flag and will include a Basket of Cheer & the Breast Cancer Awareness game ball.
*We ask all attendees to PINK OUT their outfit and wear as much pink as possible!
Our goal for this event is to raise money for PA Breast Cancer Coalition during Breast Cancer Awareness month by having a big community (rugby & public) turnout for the cause. We hope this event will continue to build positive and meaningful community ties in the local Harrisburg area. We will be showing HRFC in a positive light while doing something good for a great cause! Whitehorse Women & Media will be notified prior to the events so that all teams can participate.
Leading up to this event, we ask you to do 4 things:
1. Respond for PINK OUT shirts on app or via email to Angi . We will be taking pre-order size requests.
2. Donate a bottle / item to the Basket of Cheer. Please bring donations to practice or Venmo Angi if you won’t have time to shop or if you are under 21 & unable to.
3. Collect gently used bras/sports bras. Check closets, ask your gf/wife/mom, etc. Please bring donations to practice.
4. Invite family, friends, neighbors to the event! Share the event on social media to get the word out.
*get your pink gear ready! We hope to see all of HRFC our on 10/20! Remember, real ruggers wear pink!
