Spikes to host ‘Paint the Park Pink’ event

The State College Spikes announced their annual Paint the Park Pink event for breast cancer awareness will be Sunday, Aug. 2 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

Fans who make a donation will have the opportunity to paint designated areas of the ballpark pink for the first time. Donations will go to the Breast Care Center at Mount Nittany Medical Center through The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center.

State College will take on the Lowell Spinners at 6:05 that night.

The Spikes will be wearing special pink camouflage jerseys, which will be auctioned off during the night and given to the winners immediately after the game. The auction will benefit The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center.

The Spikes host the Williamsport Crosscutters in their season opener on June 19.
