ADRIAN, Mich. - The annual women's basketball Pink Zone game will take place on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. against Alma College. It is the regular season finale for the team and once again raises awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. with a silent auction as well as a bake sale in the Merillat Sport and Fitness Center lobby. Dave Santia, a speed painter, will also be performing (http://www.davesantiagallery.com/).

All survivors are asked to attend the game for a special recognition during pre-game. The Adrian College dance team will also be performing at halftime. Students from the art department will be decorating chairs during a "Chair-ity" auction. There will also be t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, cozies and jewelry for sale during the festivities.

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 57,650 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
  • About 39,520 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2011 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1990 — especially in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
