Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2013
On Sunday, October 27, 2013, Team Purple set out to Make Strides Against Breast Cancer during the annual American Cancer Society walk. Team Purple had the opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, remember people they had lost, and raise funds and awareness to help end this disease. Over 100 members donated nearly $17,000 for the cause, blowing past our goal of $10k- Way to go Team Purple! Thank you to everyone who joined and raised funds at A Purple Bingo Night, A Purple Evening, A Purple Evening- Wine Tasting and the raffle for a Ray Rice Autographed Football. Congratulations to Kim S. from Gambrills, MD who was our lucky winner! We look forward to 2014 and continuing to strive for a cure to end cancer.
A Purple Evening 2013
Nearly 5,000 Purple members came to M&T Bank Stadium on Monday, September 30th for the 7th annual, A Purple Evening. Though the evening was not exclusive to women, it is definitely catered to female Ravens fans. The event included a variety of activities that entertained the most avid and knowledgeable fans, as well as those who were just looking for a girls’ night out. Some of the evening’s highlights included a free giveaway tote bag, on-field drills & activities, a live 98Rock broadcast, Football 101 teaching sessions, a Ravens style lounge, exclusive stadium access, player appearances and autographs and the Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl XLVII and much more! Attendees also had access to concessions, the Ravens Team Store and special offers from Ravens partners.

Purple Bingo 2013
800 Purple members tested their luck at the 2nd annual Purple Bingo Night at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday, July 18th. Purple members had the chance to win unique Ravens prizes like a Joe Flacco autographed canvas or a Ray Rice mini helmet, and much more! Ravens Wide Receiver LaQuan Williams was the guest bingo caller for the evening and each winner had the chance to meet LaQuan and have their picture taken. A portion of the proceeds of every ticket purchased went towards LaQuans foundation, The LaQuan Williams Foundation, which provides programs designed to encourage healthy lifestyles, gang prevention, and educational and career advancement for Baltimore’s youth. Purple was able to present LaQuan a check for $2,500!
While the Bingo games were being played, attendees had the chance to purchase tickets for two raffle prizes- a Jacoby Jones autographed canvas and a Jacoby Jones autographed football. All the proceeds went to Team Purple for the American Cancer Society, and that evening Purple raised over $3,000 for the cause!
Thank you to all Purple members who attended!
