Romeo's presents PINK ON THE PITCH match
Posted on: Friday, May 20, 2011
The Victoria Highlanders FC in partnership with Romeo’s Pizza are proud to present the 2nd Annual Pink on the Pitch event, taking place at Saturday’s (May 21) PDL Men’s home opener versus rivals Vancouver Whitecaps Reserves at Bear Mountain Stadium at 7:00pm. All proceeds from the event will go to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (BC & Yukon).
Romeos proudly presents the Victoria Highlanders first charity event of the season when the Vancouver Whitecaps Reserves visit Langford in USL Premier Development League action. Last year, the club raised almost $10,000 on behalf of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (BC & Yukon) by auctioning off pink game jerseys worn by the Highlanders players, along with other raffle and fifty-fifty fundraisers. The clan responded to the supportive crowd last year by defeating the 'Caps 3-2 in exciting fashion.
In addition to a great opening day atmosphere and chance to raise money for a fantastic cause, Highlanders fans and supporters will be treated to an exhilarating 90+ minutes of soccer action as the Highlanders enter the match with a 1-1-1 record and four points, good for second spot in the North West division. The Whitecaps have one win and one loss and sit third with three points making the match a sure battle for two clubs with designs on that all important second spot ranking in the tables. Only the top 2 teams from each division qualify for the PDL playoffs.
