AnswerFirst Communications, an international telephone answering service and customer service solutions company specializing in answering services, virtual receptionist and call center solutions, announced this week that their Marketing Coordinator, April Gillmore, attended the Pitch For Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Benefit at Brighthouse Stadium in Clearwater, FL on Friday, July 22, 2011.
The Sixth Annual Pitch For Pink was a minor league baseball game and charity event featuring the Clearwater Threshers against the Fort Myers Miracle. Prior to the game, local celebrities including a mix of media personalities and professional athletes including Jen Holloway, ABC weather's Dennis Phillips, NBC traffic reporter Leslee Lacey, Buccaneers players Derrick Brooks and Maurice Stovall and more took the field for a softball match. After the celebrity softball game, breast cancer survivors walked a lap around the field before the Clearwater Threshers took the field in pink jerseys. The event also included a silent auction where game worn jerseys, autographed pink bats, pink balloons and a football signed by Mike Alstott were auctioned. All proceeds went to Morton Plant Mease breast health services and programs.
April Gillmore, Marketing Coordinator at AnswerFirst said, “It was great to see local professional athletes and media personalities get together to support a good cause. The celebrity softball game was entertaining and the breast cancer survivors’ walk around the field was touching. We hope the event raised a significant amount of money for Morton Plant Mease.”
