A mixture of the Youngsville Eagle colors of red and white would make pink.
At 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5 the Youngsville High School football team will have all three on display when it hosts Union City. Organizers have a pink out planned for the game.
Kathy Kesterholt, an oncology nurse at Warren General Hospital's Cancer Care Center, wanted to host the event after attending one at her old high school in New Castle. She lives in Youngsville. now
There will be an auction and 50/50 raffle to raise money in support of the center's Relay for Life team. Auction items include an iPad with a pink smart cover, Kesterholt said, as well as a Thirty-One tote and other pink items.
"It's all about pink," Kesterholt said.
Players aren't allowed to alter their main uniforms. However, Kesterholt said they will be wearing pink socks.
Instead of limiting it to Youngsville, Kesterholt said she would like the entire area to support the event. She would also like to have a pink out annually.
Fans attending the game are encouraged to wear pink. Youngsville students will be asked to wear pink to school that day, Kesterholt said, and they will be participating in fundraisers there.
Other schools in the county could also participate, Kesterholt said. Those who may be attending other games can buy raffle tickets ahead of time at different area locations or donate at the center.
About 21,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. When that number is broken down, Kesterholt said one in eight women will develop breast cancer.
