Phoenix Mercury To “Rock The Pink” To Raise Breast Heath Awareness


US Airways Center PinkThe Phoenix Mercury will turn US Airways Center pink on Thursday, August 6, at 7:24pm (approximate sunset) in honor of its annual “Rock the Pink” initiative, brought to fans by IASIS Healthcare.

The arena will remain pink for more than 24 hours, culminating with the Mercury’s “Rock the Pink” matchup versus the Minnesota Lynx on Friday night at US Airways Center. Tip-off is set for 7pm. The unique initiative is designed to raise breast health awareness in the Valley.

Beyond turning US Airways Center pink, the team will wear pink uniforms on Friday night and celebrate breast cancer survivors during a number of in-game festivities. The Mercury will tipoff the evening with a luminaria drive, offering fans the opportunity to purchase a luminaria for $1 and write a message in honor of someone who has been affected by breast cancer. The luminarias will be placed in the shape of a breast cancer ribbon and lit at halftime, with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society.

US Airways Center is located at 201 East Jefferson Street in Phoenix. For tickets and information, call 602.252.WNBA or visit www.phoenixmercury.com.
