Time to get Passionately Pink

The fourth annual “Passionately Pink for the Cure” game between New Albany and Floyd Central girls will take place at Prosser Field on September 13, but a preceding fundraising concert is to be staged at Kye’s II in Jeffersonville this Friday (September 7, from 6-11 p.m.).

Entertainment will be provided by local bands The Hi-tops, The Juice Box Heroes and Rachel Timberlake.

There will also be a silent auction with all proceeds from the night going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Fund. Appetizers will be served by Tumbleweed.

“We have many local vendors involved and a big sponsorship from Lucas Oil,” said New Albany team manager, Rhonda Iglesias. “The concert is a fun way to raise money for a cause that affects us all.”

Iglesias said the boys’ teams are also getting involved this year and will be holding their own game the same night as the girls at Floyd Central.

“All teams will be wearing pink to show their support for the cause,” she said. “Each year we gain more support from the community to help us raise money for this cause and we’re excited to see what this year will bring.”

Tickets for the concert are $10 in advance ($12 at the door) and can be purchased at any Floyd Central or New Albany home soccer game, from performing artists, or by calling 502-724-1594.
