West Texas Roughnecks Prepare For Breast Cancer Awareness Night

The West Texas Roughnecks have teamed up with Odessa Regional Medical Center for their game this Saturday versus the Amarillo Venom which is Breast Cancer Awareness Night. This yearly event has traditionally been known to be one of the biggest home games if not the biggest home game of the year. The Roughnecks and ORMC have joined together to provide the first 1000 fans a PINK BALL CAP in honor of Breast Cancer awareness. At halftime and post game the Roughnecks will auction off game worn pink themed jerseys and all proceeds will go to American Cancer Society and Susan G Komen foundation. "I am proud to hold such a worthwhile fundraiser and it just goes to show that our organization can be utilized in raising money not only for such a cause as this, but it further shows our continued commitment to giving back to our community", boasted Owner Dale Morris. "This is a disease that effects everyone in some way and we hope to raise at least $2,000 for the research and someday a cure for this devastating disease", Morris further stated that each year the Roughnecks organization strives to exceed the following years donation. Odessa Regional Medical Center have graciously donated 10 mamograms to be given away at Saturday's game. The Roughnecks presented ORMC with an authentic Breast Cancer Jersey framed as a gift for all their hard work at treating this disease and helping promote Saturdays fundraiser.
When talking about the game Morris stated that "This game gives us the opportunity to get back to 500 and in the hunt for the playoffs". The Lone Star Football League inaugural season is at the midway point with Amarillo Venom and the Roughnecks currently at 2-3, a win will put the Roughnecks in front of Amarillo.
