    Pink?

    OU is a breast cancer game. I don't have anything pink - does Hilton sell any manly pink products? Trying to plan early in case I have to order it.

    Just throw a new red sweatshirt in the wash with a new white t-shirt and you will have your pink t-shirt. :)

    I gotta think they will be selling something pink at Hilton.

    You don't have to buy anything pink. Komen is a racket. Support cancer research and cure by directly contributing to the Jimmy V Foundation.

    It is for the Kay Yow Foundation. The former North Carolina State coach who died in 2009 from cancer. This foundation works closely with the V Foundation as they were both NC State coaches.

    I have seen pink ball caps before besides pink t-shirts. They usually advertise pink items a week before the game or so.

    It's brick not pink, at least that's what my wife told me when she bought me a pink shirt once.

    Re: Pink?

    I don't understand - is this a fundraiser? I thought it was solidarity show which I supported in the few years we have been doing this.

    Both. If it's just a general pink shirt or whatever then they get no proceeds and it's just a sign of solidarity. If it's licensed Yow Foundation or Jimmy V Fund then obviously they get a cut to make it a fundraiser.

    Thanks!

    Where do you get those shirts? And are these guys uncontroverisal? Do they have low admin costs?

    I have no idea. I know the bookstore/Cy's Locker Room usually has Pink shirts around this time, pretty sure these are not licensed to those foundations though.

    They give out pink CA shirts just like they give out gold one's for the gold out games.
