EAST PROVIDENCE, RI (February 24, 2013) – Rhode Island Medical Imaging (RIMI) was pleased to once again donate $2,500 to support the Providence College (PC) Women’s Basketball Program’s fight to end breast cancer. The donation covered the purchase of the ‘Pink Out Friartown’ uniforms, which were worn during the February 22, 2014 ‘Pink Out’ game against BIG EAST newcomer Xavier University at Alumni Hall/Mullaney Gymnasium in Providence, R.I.
“RIMI is pleased to support the PC Women’s Basketball’s ‘Pink Out’ event,” said Dr. Scott Levine of RIMI, who was on-hand for the check presentation. “We greatly enjoyed our participation in this worthwhile program last year, and are happy to once again assist in the purchase of the ‘Pink Out’ uniforms. The fight to end breast cancer must be a team effort, and we are happy to support such a worthy cause.”
Spectators provided voluntary donations at the “Pink Out Friartown” game against Xavier and many wore pink to show their support. Additionally, the ‘Pink Out Friartown’ uniforms worn by the players will be dry-cleaned and auctioned off, with all proceeds to support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
PC Women’s Basketball coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl accepted the donation on behalf of the organization: “Our thanks go out to RIMI for their continued support of this program. The “Pink Out Friartown” game is a fun family atmosphere and is also a great way to show our solidarity in the fight against breast cancer.”
