“Dig Pink” Volleyball Matches Raise Money for Breast Cancer Research
In support of the fight against breast cancer, the Penn State Brandywine women’s volleyball team will host a “Dig Pink” fundraiser on campus, Saturday, Oct. 1, with matches against Pennsylvania College of Technology, Penn State Hazleton and Penn State Schuylkill.
The team is encouraging all guests to help them achieve a “pink out”--think “white out” at Beaver Stadium--by wearing pink. T-shirts will be sold at the event. All donations will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, which awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families, according to its website. The team hopes to raise $500 in donations.
“This is a great opportunity for our four schools to come together to support an important cause,” said Brandywine’s Sports Information Coordinator and Head Volleyball Coach Melissa Algeo.
The games will be played in the Penn State Brandywine gymnasium, at 25 Yearsley Mill Road in Media, and will begin at 12 and 2 p.m.
