Dans to ‘Bat for Cure’


DANVILLE — The Danville Dans and Presence United Samaritans Medical Center’s Foundation will host “At Bat for the Cure Night” at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Danville Stadium. Tickets can be purchased at the gate. The Dans will take on the Terre Haute Rex.

Fans are encouraged to “Paint the Park Pink” by wearing pink to the game in support of breast cancer awareness. Foundation volunteers will sell commemorative pink balloons for release in a tribute ceremony prior to the game. Proceeds from the sale benefit the New Horizon Breast Cancer Support Group of Presence United Samaritans.

Players will use pink bats at the start of the game, which will be autographed and sold in a silent auction during the game along with other special Dans items. Fireworks will pop off after the game.

Free hot dogs will be served prior to the game for the first 300 fans who purchase a commemorative balloon.
