Orlando Magic and AdventHealth raise Breast Cancer Awareness through “Pink in the Paint Night”

Magic fans are encouraged to wear pink to tonight's Oct. 17 game.



As part of Orlando Magic Tip-Off presented by AdventHealth, the Magic and AdventHealth are teaming up for the fifth time to raise breast cancer awareness hosting Pink in the Paint Night on October 17 at the Magic vs. Pelicans matchup, tip-off set for 7:00 p.m.


The Magic are donating game tickets to local breast cancer survivors and funds raised throughout the night will benefit AdventHealth Foundation’s Breast Care Fund. In addition, as a supporting partner of the night, the revolutionary hair tie company, TELETIES, will donate breast cancer awareness TELETIES packs to the first 4,000 fans upon entry.


TELETIES recently joined the Magic partnership family with a strong ‘tie’ to the community and a passion for philanthropy, focusing on the fight against breast cancer.


During the evening, TELETIES will donate $250 for every point scored in the fourth quarter of the game to the nonprofit, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE). The Magic will also match the donation. FORCE works to improves the lives of millions of individuals and families facing hereditary breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, colorectal and endometrial cancers. FORCE advocates for awareness, access to care and better treatment and prevention options.


Additional highlights for Pink in the Paint Night include Central Florida breast cancer survivors at the game to be honored along with AdventHealth physicians.


Several locations will also be set up throughout the arena for fans to make donations to AdventHealth’s Breast Care Fund, which assists women who cannot afford clinical breast exams and annual mammograms – the most effective tool in the fight against breast cancer. The locations for donations include select concession and retail locations in the arena. The Magic are also encouraging fans to wear pink to the game.


More than three million women in the United States have a history of breast cancer, and one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. With it being estimated that nearly 300,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year – almost 15 times the capacity of Amway Center, the Magic’s Pink in the Paint Night presented by AdventHealth provides a way to continue the team’s health and wellness efforts and provide prevention education to fans.
