Ask my daughter, and she will tell you that the colors orange and pink go perfectly together. So naturally, October should be her favorite month, right? Because other than PSL’s, flannel shirts and pumpkin patches, there’s one thing we ladies see all through the month, and that’s PINK. Through the caloric haze of the spice cakes and the tangled mess of football mums, we can’t forget about: Breast Cancer Awareness month. Time to talk about the tah-tahs.
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s staggering. And many women can’t afford to get screened. That’s where organizations like the NBCF come in. Their mission is to provide mammograms to those who can’t get them, and to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
Those are heavy tasks they do all year, but It’s PINKTOBER y’all. SO… How about we do something FUN?
Game Pink Presents: Minecraft Live Event.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), headquartered right here in Frisco, has brilliantly conjured up a new gaming initiative called, Game Pink, which will bring together gamers and their families to help women and families affected by breast cancer.
The inaugural event, Game Pink Presents Minecraft Live will be on Sunday, October 28th, from 2-7pm at Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas. This is a big deal y’all. You know how big that arena is… and here’s why.
(*** Author’s note: Don’t read this next paragraph out loud if you have a gamer nearby at the potential risk of eardrums bursting.***)
This one of a kind Minecraft live experience will feature four of the world’s top Minecraft Superstars, Colleyville’s own PrestonPlayz, Unspeakable Gaming, Moosecraft, and LogDotZip, as they play head-to-head in person for the first time together from 4-6pm.
Okay Mom, if you don’t know who they are, let me put it in perspective for you: All four guys have a total of more than 24 million subscribers on YouTube!
The pre-show experience, from 2-4pm, will include photos with player’s character mascots, scavenger hunt, costume contest, console & PC free play, large screen single player exhibit, and merchandise alley.
You’ll earn major mom points if you take your kids to this, AND 100% of the net proceeds from this unique event will help women and families affected by breast cancer.
