The football team at Southeast Missouri State University introduced the Pink Up Jersey Auction on Wednesday, Aug. 12.

The collaboration between Saint Francis Medical Center and Southeast Athletics is leading up to the Pink Up game on Oct. 31.

Pink jerseys will be worn during the game against Tennessee Tech.

Bidding on game-worn jerseys opened on Wednesday. After the auction closes at 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 12, the winners will personalize their winning jerseys with a name in honor or memory of a survivor or loved one, if desired.

After the game on Oct. 31, the jerseys will be presented to the winning bidders. The winners will also receive two game tickets and an invitation to a pre-game tailgate party.
