Forsyth Central’s varsity softball team will replace its traditional red and black with pink for a day.
The Lady Bulldogs will play a “Pink Out” game against Miller Grove on Thursday at the Central softball field, as part of a fundraiser benefitting Northside Hospital’s Cancer Care Center and its ongoing support of patients with breast cancer.
The Pink Out begins at 5 p.m. with first pitch set for 5:30 p.m.
All funds raised from admissions go directly to the center.
During the game the Lady Bulldogs will wear special pink jerseys — donated by A-Team Sports — and will share pink wrist bands with Miller Grove.
The first pitch will be a pink softball thrown by a cancer survivor who has been selected by the team for this event. Fans are encouraged to wear pink.
The team will hold a raffle for a gift basket filled with gifts from local businesses preceding the game.
Tickets for the raffle are $5 each while admission to the game is $5 for adults and $3 for children.
Tickets to see the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves, Georgia Bulldogs and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be given away between innings.
Following the pink campaign, the Lady Dawgs will visit Northside’s Cancer Care Center to offer the donation in person.
