Baseball Play Pink Thank You

Playpink2013logo_72Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Fourth Annual Play Pink Game and fundraising event for Angel Flight South Central. Despite the rain on Saturday, we raised more money than any previous year… more than $4,500 to support a great cause and charitable organization. That says so much about the caring nature and generosity of San Jacinto College, the community and the baseball program. We had people from all campuses help or donate and it was by all means a group effort to make this event such a success this season. We could not have done it without you!

 

 

 

Here are some highlights from the event with special recognition:

  • Over $4,500 was raised to bring the total amount of Play Pink contributions since 2010 to almost $13,000.
