Peanuts sport pink

August 3, 2007

Albany - - The South Georgia Peanuts are thinking pink. 

At Friday evening's game, players wore pink jerseys to support breast cancer awareness.

The Peanuts teamed with a group called Perky with a Purpose.

For each person who attended the game wearing pink, the Peanuts donated one dollar to the group.

Perky with a Purpose says they need that money for an upcoming awareness walk in Atlanta.  

"We walk 60 miles over 3 days and each one of us has to raise in order to be in the walk. so what this is a fundraiser for our team so we'll be able to walk in the walk in October," says Beth Green.

The Peanuts also had pink lemonade for sale.
