GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Graves County High School varsity football Eagles will host Owensboro at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23.

A special feature of the game will be a "Pink Out!"

Pink Out is an event held each October at high school football games throughout America. The goal is to raise awareness of breast cancer and to educate women about the disease. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Jennifer Gish, mother of football Eagle Brennan Culp, has organized the event and proceeds will go to Book For Hope Inc.

A halftime balloon release is planned. Participants may purchase pink balloons for $5 each in honor or in memory of a loved one who has battled cancer.  Pink glow sticks are $2.

Pink Out tee-shirts are $15.

Take a selfie photo taken with a Tennessee Titans cheerleader for a $10 donation to Book For Hope Inc. Former Miss Tennessee Kiara Young also will participate.
