Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
Get ready to don your prettiest pink, see the Round Rock Express play the Memphis Redbirds, and join the Shannon Schmitz Group to be part of the “great pink out” supporting breast cancer awareness Saturday July 27, 2013.
The Shannon Schmitz Group is proud to announce that they will be the 2013 Title Sponsor for the Susan G. Komen® Austin / Round Rock Express Pink in the Park event. “Having known far too many friends who have had breast cancer, I deeply believe in this cause.” Shannon Schmitz said when accepting the challenge.
As a special tribute, 20 survivors and their children will join the Express players in each of their nine positions during the National Anthem. Schmitz has invited: Jennifer Wegmiller, Christi Davidson, Kathy Neu, Sally Lee and Lana Russell, all breast cancer survivors, to be among those honored. Selected to throw out the first pitch is Jeanne Stahl, a long-time breast cancer survivor who has devoted her life to helping those with the disease find ways to cope.
Express players and coaches will wear pink pinstriped jerseys that feature the breast cancer ribbon on the sleeve. These jerseys will be available via a silent auction put on by the players’ and coaches’ wives during the game. Other items on the auction block include the opportunity to be “manager for a day”, “bullpen coach for a game” and several bats autographed by well-known players.
