Oregon Tech Holds Third Annual Pink Out
Klamath Falls, Ore. – The Oregon Tech men’s and women’s basketball teams will join in the fight against cancer on Saturday, January 21, 2012 when they host College of Idaho in the third annual “Pink Out!” cancer awareness event at Danny Miles Court at the Oregon Tech, Klamath Falls Campus.
The women will take to the court at 5:30 p.m. and the men’s team will play at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are: Reserved Seating $15; General: Adult $10, Seniors $6, Students $3 (Oregon Tech Students Free with ID), Children 5 and under are Free.
To support cancer awareness and the Martha Anne Dow Endowed Scholarship, both the women’s and men’s teams will wear pink uniforms. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the first 2,000 fans will receive a free pink Oregon Tech t-shirt at the door.
Martha Anne Dow served as the president of Oregon Tech from 1999-2007. The former president and Hustlin’ Owls basketball fan lost her battle with breast cancer on September 29, 2007.
“The Pink Out is a fitting tribute to President Dow. She made lasting contributions to Oregon Tech. The Center for Health Professions was her vision and, today, it bears her name,” said Dr. Chris Maples, president of Oregon Tech. “Martha Anne Dow envisioned this building as a place to provide opportunities for educating students in health professions, where they would learn how to support physicians in detecting disease, imaging the human body, and caring for patients in a multitude of settings and disciplines.”
The Martha Anne Dow Endowed Scholarship was established by the Oregon Tech President’s Advisory Council and is one of the competitive scholarships available to Oregon Tech students. “Giving to this scholarship is one very tangible and fitting way to keep the vision of Martha Anne Dow alive,” noted Maples.
