Pink will be plentiful at this week’s third annual Susan G. Komen Girls Flag Football Tournament.
The three-day event, which includes two days of competition and a Bigger and Better Family Fun Night, is a fund-raiser for Susan G. Komen For the Cure.
More than 30 flag football teams from Palm Beach County and a handful of teams in the “moms division” are expected to participate in the event, which will be held Jan. 6 and Jan. 9-10 at Acreage Community Park and Okeeheelee Park.
“What’s a better way to have a tournament mean something?” tournament director Chris Mathews said of the fund-raiser. “Everybody can win a trophy, but to have it mean something means more.
“You see the girls put their hearts and souls into it, because they dye their hair pink, they do the wristbands pink. It just seemed like a natural combination that the girls would play for something that will probably help benefit them one day.” –read full article here
