TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- You're used to turning the Civic Center garnet and gold, but now let's Paint it Pink!

The FSU Women's basketball team is raising awareness for breast cancer awareness with Monday night's game.

The Paint it Pink campaign is a collaboration of Florida State athletics and Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare. The initiative is now in its seventh year.

The Seminoles will be playing in pink Nike uniforms and shoes to show their support against breast cancer.

Plus, Paint it Pink shirts will be on sale for $10. Proceeds support the Sharon Ewing Walker Breast Health Center. The first 300 fans will get a pink LED bracelet to wear during starting lineups to truly light up the Civic Center.

Monday's game will be nationally televised on ESPN 2, as the Seminoles are taking on second-ranked Notre Dame. Organizers say, "Florida State is ranked 10th nationally and needs a good crowd at the Tucker Center."

The Paint it Pink game is Monday, February 22 at 7 p.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.

Tickets are $3.
