St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital is partnering with St. Anthony High School's Student Council for a Pink Out game Friday for the St. Anthony High School boys' basketball game against Teutopolis. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink to the game to paint the gym pink for breast cancer awareness.

The theme of the night is "Playing Tonight for a Cure Tomorrow," and everyone wil be decked out in pink with the basketball players wearing pink shoelaces snd the coaches sporting pink shirts. St. Anthony High School students have been selling pink T-shirts to students to wear the night of the game. Pink bandanas and pink hearts will be available for purchase at the game.

Funds raised from the purchase of these items will benefit breast cancer awareness and education at St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital.

A special recognition ceremony and check presentation to the Freinds of St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital to support the hospital's Women's Wellness Center will be held between the junior varsity and varsity basketball games that evening.
