Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital presents Pink in the Park
Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital and the defending Atlantic League Champion Sugar Land Skeeters will team up for Pink in the Park.
Memorial Hermann Sugar Land is teaming up with MD Anderson Cancer Center to honor breast cancer survivors on the field during the game. A silent auction will be held for fans to bid on baseball bats painted by Skeeters players to support breast cancer awareness. Pink jerseys and cleats worn by the players during the game will also be up for bid in the silent auction.
Proceeds from Pink in the Park will be used to enhance the breast cancer services offered through MD Anderson Breast Care with Memorial Hermann-Sugar Land, including digital mammography for screening and diagnostics and the cutting edge 3-D breast tomosynthesis. This digital technology can detect smaller breast tumors that may be missed by traditional mammography. The technology is particularly beneficial for women with dense or fatty breast tissue.
