Join the College of Health and Human Development, the School of Nursing, and the HHD Alumni Society Board for PinkZone 2013

PinkZone 2013

Dear Alumni and Friends:

The College of Health and Human Development (HHD) and the School of Nursing (SON) are continuing our proud tradition of supporting the annual “Pink Zone” Women’s Basketball Game, which raises funds for and highlights the importance of preventing and treating breast cancer. Our Alumni Society Board also is supporting the event and encouraging alumni to attend.

We hope faculty and staff members, students, alumni, and friends will join us for the game and related events. This year’s special activities will take place on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Penn State vs. Michigan game to be played at the Bryce Jordan Center. Tip-off is at 1:00 p.m. It should be a great game!

To purchase tickets

Group ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for youth. If you are interested in purchasing tickets through our group, please contact Barbara King (email: bak14@psu.edu; phone: 814-865-4392) in the HHD Dean’s Office. Our group will be seated together in the stands. The deadline for ordering tickets is Monday, February 11.

Penn State students get in free with their student IDs. Survivors’ tickets are free as well (see ‘Breast Cancer Survivors’ section below to register). Note that students and survivors will be seated elsewhere.

Pre-Game Reception

Whether you purchase tickets through us or sit elsewhere, please join us prior to the game at 11:30 a.m. in Room E/F at the Bryce Jordan Center for light refreshments. Friends and family members of all ages are welcome. The Nittany Lion often joins us, and we are hoping for a repeat visit!

Breast Cancer Survivors

Prior to the game, breast cancer survivors can sign up for the Pink Zone's Breast Cancer Survivor Package. A special halftime ceremony will honor all breast cancer survivors in attendance. To register as a survivor, visit pennsylvaniapinkzone.org/survivors.html.
