The Phoenix Mercury Rocked the Pink in support of breast health awareness and raised more than $10,000 for the American Cancer Society and Breast Cancer
Society during the teams matchup against the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday, July 29.
As one of the beneficiaries of Rock the Pink night, we would like to give a big thank you to the Phoenix Mercury for their dedication to helping the
American Cancer Society Finish the Fight against cancer, said Maraka Mason, Senior Director of Distinguished Events for the American Cancer Society. The
support and awareness the Mercury are able to bring to programs such as Look Good Feel Better and Reach To Recovery and the assistance they provide cancer
survivors and caregivers is immeasurable. Way to Rock the Pink, Mercury!
The money was raised through the teams pre-game luminaria dedication drive and post-game live auction of Mercury players pink jerseys from the game.
In addition to the monetary donations, free screenings were held in a mobile mammography unit on the plaza of US Airways Center prior to the game, courtesy

The support shown by Mercury fans during this years Rock the Pink initiative was really incredible, said Mercury President Jason Rowley. Their
compassion and generosity allowed us to make a substantial donation to two organizations that continue to positively impact the fight against cancer.
