The Harrisburg City Islanders and the Feel Your Boobies Foundation (FYB) are partnering again in 2017 to raise awareness for breast cancer in a big way! In the past, the Islanders and FYB have joined forces to encourage breast health education through raising funds for FYB and carrying out their successful ‘Bras Across the Bridge’ event. This year, the partnership will include similar efforts and more.
The partnership kicked off today with a limited-time ‘City Islanders Go Pink T-Shirt and Ticket’ combination package going on sale. Until June 23rd, fans can order a custom ‘City Islanders Go Pink’ t-shirt and ticket for $20, with 20% of the proceeds benefiting FYB. The ticket will be valid for the Islanders home match on June 24th, where they will host Pink Night. Packages can be purchased here. The ‘City Islanders GO Pink’ t-shirts will be available for purchase individually at the game.
Like last year, the Harrisburg City Islanders will sport a pink and white kit, which will be auctioned off post-match and all proceeds from the auction will be donated to FYB. The auction will run from June 24th until August 4th. Additionally, all fans are encouraged to donate a bra at any Islanders home game from June 24th-August 12th to receive a discount on 2017 Islanders merchandise in support of FYB and their mission.
Bras Across the Bridge will take place on August 12, 2017. The event will begin at FNB Field as the Islanders prepare to host the Pittsburgh Riverhounds and conclude in Downtown Harrisburg. Post-match fireworks sponsored by Sky Shooters will close out the evening and another successful Pink Night on City Island.
