FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
East Providence, RI (March 5, 2015) – Rhode Island Medical Imaging (RIMI) was pleased to donate $2,500 for a third year in a row to support the Providence College (PC) women’s basketball program’s fight to end breast cancer. The donation covered the purchase of the ‘Think Pink’ uniforms, which were worn during the February 22nd ‘Pink Out’ game against Big East Conference opponent DePaul University at Alumni Hall/Mullaney Gymnasium in Providence, R.I.
“RIMI is pleased to continue our support of the PC women’s basketball’s ‘Pink Out’ event,” said Dr. Scott Levine of RIMI. “It was an honor to participate in this meaningful event in the past, and we are happy to continue this new tradition by assisting in the purchase of the ‘Think Pink’ uniforms. Just as in basketball, the fight to end breast cancer comes from a team effort, and we are happy to join together to support such a worthy cause.”
Spectators provided voluntary donations at the ‘Think Pink’ game against DePaul, and many wore pink to show their support. Additionally, the ‘Think Pink’ uniforms worn by the players will be dry-cleaned and auctioned off, with all proceeds to support breast cancer awareness.
PC women’s basketball coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl accepted the donation on behalf of the organization: “We are grateful that RIMI has decided to continue their support for this wonderful program. Each year we look forward to the uplifting atmosphere during the ‘Think Pink’ game, and the opportunity it allows to show our unwavering support for this cause.”
RIMI also sponsored PC’s ‘Think Pink’ Club Room, where daughters of office staff and employees were able to meet and greet players and staff prior to attending the game.
