The event will take place at Friendship Park on Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring at 6 p.m. The Red Devils expected to have over 100 supporters on site wearing pink shirts to show support for the cure for breast cancer.

The team hopes that more teams participate and people get involved to make this the biggest breast cancer awareness promotion that they have ever done.

On Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. at six different football field locations (Campbell, Newport, Dayton, LLOYD, Walton and Scott fields) will be a "Pink Out" dedication day where members will wear their pink-out shirts.
