Kitsap Pumas present Hope For A Cure Day for cancer awareness

The Kitsap Pumas providing a day of celebration for last game of the 2016 season, July 17.

The Kitsap Pumas will wear specially created pink jerseys during their 2016 season finale on Sunday, July 17, against the Calgary Foothills.

The jerseys will be auctioned off to raise money for cancer awareness. Hope For A Cure Day kicks off at 2 p.m. at Gordon Field.

“We’re proud to put on this event to support local charities,” said Pumas head coach Cameron MacDonald, who has a 3-year-old nephew fighting neuroblastoma at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

“Everybody is touched by cancer one way or another in their lives, so this is a cause that we hope everybody in the Kitsap community will help us support.”

Bidding for player jerseys begins at $25. The jerseys also can be purchased outright for $100. Those interested can email to put in a bid ahead of the game on Sunday.

If the winning bidder is present at the game, he or she will receive the shirt directly after the game. Otherwise, it will be mailed to him or her.

Besides the jersey auction, various pre-game and halftime activities for those in attendance will offer a number of Pumas prizes, with proceeds going to a cancer-related charity.

Because the club would like to impact the local area as much as possible, all monies will be donated to a charity within Kitsap County.

Finally, any adult wearing a pink shirt or hat will receive entry to the match for $7 instead of the usual $10 adult ticket. The game also marks the final opportunity to take advantage of free admission for youth players with a paying adult (the promotions can be combined), and a chance for the Pumas to remain unbeaten in competitive matches at Gordon Field for three straight seasons.
