There are special events throughout the basketball games of the boys and girls’ games. These events include Phi Mu selling raffle tickets and have the proceeds go to organizations that are also supporting the fight against breast cancer. Zeta Tau Alpha will be selling t-shirts in pink that are made specifically for this event. There will also be shirts thrown into the crowd that are the color pink.
