“RIMI is pleased to continue our support of the PC women’s basketball’s ‘Pink Out’ event,” said Scott Levine of RIMI.  “It was an honor to participate in this meaningful event in the past, and we are happy to continue this new tradition by assisting in the purchase of the ‘Think Pink’ uniforms.  Just as in basketball, the fight to end breast cancer comes from a team effort, and we are happy to join together to support such a worthy cause.”

The player’s uniforms will be dry-cleaned and auctioned off, with all proceeds to support breast cancer awareness.

“We are grateful that RIMI has decided to continue their support for this wonderful program,” said PC women’s basketball coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl. “Each year we look forward to the uplifting atmosphere during the ‘Think Pink’ game, and the opportunity it allows to show our unwavering support for this cause.”

RIMI also sponsored the college’s “Think Pink” Club Room, where daughters of office staff and employees had the opportunity before the game to meet and greet players and staff.
