Davis will use the game to help raise money and awareness about breast cancer.
“We’re real excited to be able to help get the word out,” said Davis quarterback Gavin Fowler. “It’s a serious problem and if we can do something to help people out and then we’re all for it.”
The Davis football team will display pink ribbon decals on the back of their helmets. The pink ribbon is the world-wide symbol for breast cancer awareness.
“It’s good that we can use the spotlight that we get to be in playing football to help people out,” Fowler said. “It will be a great night.”
The evening will begin with the sale of pink balloons to those entering the gate prior to the game. The money raised through the sale will be donated to help fight breast cancer.
At the kickoff, those balloons will be let go and drift to the night sky. “It will be a great experience,” said Davis assistant football coach Mark Pozzouli.
Pozzouli’s daughter, Victoria, captain of the D’Ettes drill team is especially excited about the event.
“My grandmother survived cancer and so it will be great to do what we can to support the fight against this disease,” Victoria said.
At halftime another moment will take place as the D’Ettes and the little girls who have attended their dance camp will perform together all dressed in pink shirts.
“I hope other teams will do something like this,” Fowler said. “It is always a good idea to give back. I think it will be a good night and I hope people will support it.”
