Mercury to Host Steward Health Care “Rock the Pink” Day for Breast Health Awareness

The three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury will host Steward Health Care Rock the Pink Day, the team’s annual initiative to raise awareness and funds for breast health, on Sunday, August 25 during their matchup with the Chicago Sky at Talking Stick Resort Arena at 3 p.m.

The Phoenix Mercury will don exclusive Nike Breast Health Awareness jerseys on the floor and the lower-level seating bowl will be draped with 9,500 exclusive “Rock the Pink” rally towels for a fourth consecutive PINK OUT thanks to Steward Health Care, creating the WNBA’s most striking visual for one of its signature platforms. Mercury mascot Scorch, the Mercury Hip Hop Squad and Mercury in-arena DJ Dean Michaels will also rock the pink on Sunday.

In advance of Sunday’s matchup, the Phoenix Mercury have launched an online auction of exclusive Mercury memorabilia fans can bid on. Following the game, the Mercury will host a live auction of game-worn pink uniforms and one-of-a-kind memorabilia from select players and coaches in attendance, including Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and DeWanna Bonner.

Fans may visit: to participate in the online auction until halftime of Sunday’s game.

The Mercury will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the jersey and online auctions along with a percentage of proceeds from sales of an exclusive Rock the Pink shirt in the Mercury Team Shop to the American Cancer Society as part of Steward Health Care Rock the Pink Day.

 The Mercury will honor cancer survivors, battlers and medical professionals in attendance throughout the game, and will include survivors in pregame player introductions, the presentation of the court-sized American flag for the national anthem and several other in-game activations.

After coming within one win of a trip to the 2018 WNBA Finals, the Phoenix Mercury continue their quest in 2019 in search of a league-record-tying fourth WNBA title with the All-Star trio of Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and DeWanna Bonner.
