The Family Circle Cup and MUSC Health have teamed up to support “Pink Out Komen Night for the Cure” on Wednesday, April 2 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island to benefit the Lowcountry Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. The Family Circle Cup encourages fans who attend the evening session to wear pink and help “pink out” the stadium. For each person who enters wearing pink, the Family Circle Cup and MUSC Health will donate $1 to the Komen Lowcountry Affiliate. Gates open at 5 p.m. and play begins at 7 p.m.
Several “pink out” themes will be performed on Thursday including: a pink carpet that will be rolled out in the player tunnel to introduce the players in style, the ball crew, umpires and court maintenance staff will be wearing pink Antigua shirts to show support. In addition, an MUSC Hollings Cancer Center patient and a Komen Lowcountry Affiliate representative will present the coin toss.
“Family Circle Cup – and the entire Daniel Island community – have been such a huge part of what we are able to do as an affiliate,” says Taffy Tamblyn, executive director of the affiliate. “The upcoming Pink Out Night is such a fun event that only adds to the enjoyment of the tournament and to the lives impacted in the Lowcountry.”
“We are excited to join forces with MUSC Health to raise money for the Komen Lowcountry Affiliate,” says Eleanor Adams, tournament manager for the Family Circle Cup. “Wednesday night will be very special for the Family Circle Cup, and I hope everyone will join us as we pink out the stadium!”
