It's Pink Out Night at SWOSU Basketball Games This Wednesday


It's "Pink Out" night at the Southwestern Oklahoma State University basketball games this Wednesday, February 18, on the Weatherford campus.

Everyone is encouraged to wear pink for breast cancer awareness, according to SWOSU Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty.

The Collegiate Activities Board will be giving away a wii, extra control game package and 32" HD VISIO television, gifts worth $800.

"Tough Enough to Wear Pink" t-shirts are $10 in the Dean of Students Office, Stafford 214, and anyone wearing that shirt on Wednesday will get five chances for the grand prize. Anyone wearing Rankin Rowdie/Bulldawg Nation t-shirts will get two chances. Students with their I.D. will also get one more chance. So, in total, a student can get up to eight chances for the prize by layering their shirts, according to Dougherty. 

All proceeds from the "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" t-shirts go to the American Cancer Society.

SWOSU basketball teams play Southeastern Oklahoma State University with the women's game starting at 6 p.m. followed by the men's game at 8 p.m.
