The Buena Vista softball team has announced plans to host a ‘Cancer Awareness Game’ this upcoming Saturday afternoon, April 6, when the team plays host to Wartburg College in its 2013 home opener.
The team has chosen not to choose just one specific type of cancer to help raise the awareness because of the numerous types that affect so many people.
With that in mind, the team will be wearing the color purple for its game, and it is asking the fans that attend to do the same to show support for those who are or have been affected.
Throughout the game, a table will be set up behind the BVU dugout where a silent auction will be held to sell those uniforms worn by each player. At the end of the game, the uniforms will go to the highest bidder for each number.
Game one of the doubleheader in Storm Lake is scheduled to begin at 2:00pm.
