Mercer Women "Think Pink" with
Breast Cancer Resource Center Feb. 7


West Windsor, N.J. - Mercer's chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges once again co-sponsored a "Think Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Night on Feb. 7 in cooperation with the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) of the YWCA Princeton. The event was held in the Physical Education building on the West Windsor campus to coincide with the men's and women's basketball games versus Burlington County College. Women's and men's players from both teams donned pink shoelaces in support of the event.

Now in its second year, "Think Pink" featured an informational display in the lobby. At the conclusion of the women's game, MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue presented BCRC representatives with 25 handmade woolen hats for breast cancer patients, which were made by members of the women's basketball team.
In addressing the fans, Dr. Donohue noted the important contribution of MCCC's female athletes and thanked all of those who helped make the event possible.

Raffle prizes and a three-point shooting contest during the men's game added to the festivities.

Approximately $300 was raised from ticket sales and other donations, including the proceeds of a bake sale at the event by members of the women's cross country team.
