The Orlando Pride is set to host its first Breast Cancer Awareness Match on Saturday night at Exploria Stadium. To go along with the match, a league-wide auction has been initiated to benefit Libby’s Legacy, an Orlando-based non-profit selected by Pride defender Toni Pressley, who announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer on Aug. 7.
Here are some highlights you should be sure to check out:
