Kicking cancer [Charitable Event]

Print

As we at Louisville.com have been reminding you for weeks now, October is breast cancer awareness month.  There have been walks, benefits, concerts and fundraisers all month long and Louisville's professional soccer team is getting in on the action!

Tonight, at 8 pm at Mockingbird Valley Indoor Soccer Club, the Louisville Lightning will be hosting an intra-squad scrimmage.  Admission is free, but the team will be accepting donations for the Susan G Komen foundation.  The 'Yellow vs Pink' matchup will place current Lightning players against one another.

After the game, fans have a chance to win one of the game-worn jerseys as they will be raffled off with proceeds benefitting the local Komen chapter.  As Louisville Lightning Director of Operations Nick Stover said "This is something we've been wanting to do for awhile. It's a chance for us to give the public their first look at the 2010-2011 squad, but more importantly, it's an opportunity to help raise money and awareness for a good cause."

Make plans to come out tonight to help kick cancer with the Louisville Lightning.
