KANNAPOLIS – The Kannapolis Intimidators, the Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, will turn their Thursday, April 21, game into a breast cancer fund-raiser with the Bosom Buddies of Davidson College’s Connor House.
The game is the team’s first “Charity Spotlight” game of the 2011 season.
The Intimidators will donate 75 cents from every ticket sold at the box office that night to Bosom Buddies as they raise money to find a biological test for breast cancer. Bosom Buddies has also been selling fund-raising tickets for Thursday’s game for $6, with 50 percent of those proceeds going directly to their organization.
Bosom Buddies is an annual charity gala run by the women of Connor House, a social and service organization of over 150 students of Davidson College. Bosom Buddies raises funds for “Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test”, a Greensboro-based nonprofit. “Friends” is the only nonprofit in the country solely dedicated to finding a biological test for breast cancer. Last year Bosom Buddies raised over $50,000.
The Kannapolis Intimidators will be hosting Charity Spotlight games throughout the 2011 season as a way to give back to the local community. Both the Intimidators and Connor House would like to thank those purchasing tickets for Thursday’s game for your generosity and support in helping us find an earlier test for breast cancer.
