On Sept. 13, the Chicago Sky hosted its annual #GETPINK Game presented by Weiss Memorial Hospital when the team welcomed the Minnesota Lynx to Allstate Arena.
As part of the Sky's #GETPINK campaign, players hosted a bake sale at the #GETPINK Game with homemade goods as part of fundraising efforts that benefited Gilda's Club Chicago.
The game between Chicago and Minnesota featured players in pink uniforms, shoes and accessories. During the game, fans cast bids on select player jerseys, dining and lodging experiences, Sky apparel and other Chicago sports teams memorabilia in a silent auction. In addition, player jerseys were featured in a post-game live auction.
The Sky won the game 98-97 and made the playoffs. However, the Sky recently came up short against the L.A. Sparks, who defeated Chicago 95-75 to win the series three games to one and advance to the WNBA finals. The Sparks are playing the Minnesota Lynx for the championship.
