The High Point Rockers unveiled the visiting clubhouse, done up completely pink, on Monday, April 8th 2019. The visiting clubhouse is covered in pink as a way to not only give the Rockers a home-field advantage, but to also serve as the team's "base of operation" in the continuing fight against breast cancer.
“We are so pleased to have the support of the High Point Rockers,” said Jodi Dixon, Director of the Oncology Service line at Hayworth Cancer Center at High Point Medical Center. “The Hayworth Cancer Center touches the lives of more than 1000 individuals each year and we could not provide this high quality, outstanding health care without the support of the entire High Point community.”
“Breast cancer is one of the leading killers amongst women in the United States and one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer in women,” Rockers team President Ken Lehner explained. “The opportunity for us to help in this battle by raising funds tonight and on August 24th is one we are more than happy to take up. We hope our fellow residents in High Point will join us in the fight by purchasing these shirts and coming out on August 24th.”
Help Knock Cancer Out of the Park!
As part of the initiative to raise funds for breast cancer research, the Rockers developed special "Rockers for Knockers" t-shirts that fans can purchase for just $20. Proceeds from the sales of these shirts will go to benefit the Hayworth Cancer Center at Wake Forest Health High Point Medical Center.
The team will also host a "Pink at the Point" night on Saturday, August 24th when High Point takes on the York Revolution. That game will serve as another fundraiser for the Hayworth Cancer Center with specialty jerseys being worn by the players and later auctioned off. You can purchase tickets for that game here!
