Almost one year ago, I proposed the idea for a Think Pink event for Ball State Softball.In my mind's eye, I could only envision what I thought would be the perfect event:It's a beautiful, sunny Sunday, and the Ball State softball team arrives to warm up in our pink jerseys, white pants, and pink socks. As families and students begin to arrive, they stop at our donation table, where they can buy baked goods,participate in the silent auction, or just donate a monetary amount to the cause. The stands are packed and after the national anthem, breast cancer survivor, Kim Dixon, throws out the first pitch. After a Ball State victory, there is a ceremony at which we present the jerseys and items to the highest bidder.In order to organize such an event, I needed a plan of attack. This thesis will describe the steps I took to make Think Pink a reality. The actual day may not have turned out how I envisioned it a year in advance, but some things simply can't be planned.
