CHICAGO — The Chicago Sky will host its annual #GETPINK Game presented by Weiss Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, September 13 when the Sky welcomes the Minnesota Lynx to Allstate Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. CDT and the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.

"We are pleased to partner with Weiss Memorial Hospital in our annual #GETPINK Game," said Sky President and CEO Adam Fox. "Our team and many of our fans have been impacted by cancer, and we are driven to contribute and do our part in raising awareness and fundraising in the effort to find a cure."

As part of the Sky's #GETPINK campaign, players will host a bake sale at the #GETPINK Game with homemade goods as part of fundraising efforts that will benefit Gilda's Club Chicago.

The game between Chicago and Minnesota will feature players in pink uniforms, shoes and accessories. During the game, fans can bid on select player jerseys, dining and lodging experiences, Sky apparel and other Chicago sports teams memorabilia in a silent auction. Up to six game-worn player jerseys will also be featured in a post-game live auction immediately following the game. Doors open at 6 p.m. CDT and the first 3,000 fans will receive a snack to-go cup presented by Weiss Memorial Hospital.

Ticket packages for the #GETPINK Game presented by Weiss Memorial Hospital start as low as $30 and include one ticket to the game, one pink Sky t-shirt and a donation to Gilda's Club Chicago. For more information, visit ChicagoSky.net or call 866.SKY.WNBA .
