Pickles partner with Compass Oncology to support breast cancer survivors (Photo) - 06/19/19

Lori Godfrey, president of the Pink Phoenix™ Dragon Boat Team will sing the national anthem at Saturday's Portland Pickles game against the Victoria HarbourCats. 

The game is a Pink Out, a breast cancer awareness event, sponsored by Compass Oncology. A portion of the ticket sales will support Pink Phoenix, a regionally recognized team made up entirely of breast cancer survivors. 

Members of the Pink Phoenix team will wear their pink uniforms to the game, and their captain, Anita Stacey, will throw out the first pitch.

Compass Oncology donated pink uniforms to be worn by the Pickles players during the game. After the game, the uniforms will be auctioned off via a silent auction and 100% of the proceeds will go to Pink Phoenix. 

The Portland Pickles will be playing the Victoria HarbourCats and will donate half of all ticket sales to the paddlers.

“We are huge fans of the Pickles,’ said Lori Godfrey, President of Pink Phoenix. “We love the team’s generosity, and of course, their mascot, Dillon ‘Dill’ Pickle.”

This is the third year the Pickles have partnered with Compass Oncology to raise awareness for breast cancer and to support the local paddlers’ team in their efforts to empower and inspire survivors of the disease.

The game is scheduled for 7:05 on Saturday and Walker Stadium in Lents Park, 4808 SE 92nd Ave in Portland.

Tickets are $12.00 and available in advance at http://bit.ly/PicklesPINKOUT3
