After a half-decade of operation, Monarch softball’s annual Pink Game has established itself as one of the most feel-good charitable events in the Boulder Valley community.
The 2014 version takes place Wednesday, when the Coyotes take on the Horizon Hawks (4:15 p.m.). The game, in which each team will don pink apparel as part of their uniforms, serves as a platform to collect items for Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Boulder.
Coyotes players will use the items to put together gift bags for breast cancer patients. The bags include items such as hard candies, small blankets, notebooks, puzzle books and anything else that can foster comfort.
Longtime Monarch parent Michele Meska, who conceived Monarch’s original version of the Pink Game five seasons ago, currently is undergoing her third round of breast cancer. Special T-shirts will be sold Wednesday to help provide meals for Meska and family during the treatment.
To donate items, seek out the pink box at the Coyotes diamond. While the big event is Wednesday, the box is available at all home games.
