Phyrst to Serve Pink Beer for Relay For Life

Pink beer, you say?

The Penn State chapter of Relay For Life will host its annual #PaintPSUPink event tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the HUB. While there won’t be any pink beer in the HUB, the Phyrst and Second (or whatever it is you call it), will serve up pink beer later that night in honor of breast cancer awareness, with donation boxes benefitting Relay for Life.

“This is a chance for Penn Staters to show their support for those fighting back against breast cancer and celebrate the strong individuals in their lives that have been affected by this disease,” said Relay For Life’s Public Relations Overall, Karen Marchuska. “Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want as many people as possible to get involved and help us Paint PSU Pink.”

There’s also a special treat for the ladies — some of the Victoria’s Secret Pink reps will be around the HUB handing out free goodies. So wear pink, get a drink, and Fight Back!
