The Perth Lynx and Perth Wildcats are both turning pink this week for their home games, raising awareness and funds for WA charity, Breast Cancer Care WA.

The Wildcats take on South East Melbourne Phoenix on Friday at RAC Arena, and the Lynx match up against the Adelaide Lightning on Saturday at the Bendat Basketball Centre.

Both team’s will be switching their trademark red uniforms for bright pink ones for the occasion.

The game balls and nets will also feature a splash of pink.

All game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care, as well as the game balls, team-signed jerseys, coaches polos and more.

Special Wildcats & Lynx Stronger In Pink merchandise is also available in the lead-up to the games as well as at the venues.

Net proceeds from all merchandise sales go to the charity.

This year, fans will also be able to make $5 donations to Breast Cancer Care WA, simply by texting the word PINK to 1998 8228.*

The Perth Wildcats & Perth Lynx are encouraging fans to also swap their red gear for pink to get into the spirit of the occasion, with a team-signed Stronger In Pink basketball being awarded to the best-dressed on the night.
