Charleston Battery Pink Night
The third annual Pink Night at the Charleston Battery at Blackbaud Stadium helped raise breast cancer awareness on Saturday, May 11.
Spirits were high at the Charleston Battery Pink Night on Saturday, May 11. The Charleston Battery squared off against the Wilmington Hammerheads in special-edition pink Nike jerseys that were to be auctioned off after the match. Pink Night is the third annual breast cancer awareness night, and spectators stepped out in their finest pink sports garb for the occasion.
While some attendees donned pink tees or sundresses, other guests went for a bolder approach. Doug Williams spray painted a fuchsia T on his head to show his support, and Beth Jackson and Alison Sigwald stepped out in feather fascinators, pink glasses, and a tinsel wig.
Others showed their support in different ways. Attendee Alice Turner proudly proclaimed, “I’m a breast cancer survivor.”
Young martial arts masters from Mount Pleasant Karate performed at half time to laughs and cheers, and Dance Anatomy followed with a dynamic dance performance.
Pink Night is an annual event hosted by the Charleston Battery, Dragon Boat Charleston, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
