FOND DU LAC, Wis- On Feb. 2, Marian University students teamed up with the children from Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys & Girls Club for fun and games at the Pink Out Basketball games held in Marian's Howard L. Sadoff Gymnasium.

The event spanned the women's and men's basketball games. During the half time of the women's basketball game, the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters competed in relay races as well as other activities sponsored by Drunk Busters of America. During the Men's basketball game half time, the children from both the Boys & Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters joined Marian students in a flash mob.

This event helped to shed light on the number of youth in need of being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister in the Fond du Lac area. The Pink Out Basketball games raised $778, all of which will go to Agnesian HealthCare to help women in need obtain mammograms.
