Bears Dig Pink

Bears Dig Pink

On Oct. 1, the Brookhaven College Lady Bears Volleyball Team played its annual Dig Pink matchup against Cedar Valley College. The Dig Pink game raises funds for The Side-Out Foundation, which supports breast cancer research.

The team has played a Dig Pink game for four years, and has now contributed more than $5,000 to the foundation.

In addition to accepting donations at the game of more than $350, a bake sale was held that brought in more than $360. The team received some extra support this year from Dr. Thom Chesney, college president, who promised a one-dollar donation for every fan who attended the game wearing pink.

Director of Student Life Brian Borski, along with his staff, made sure every fan was at least wearing a pink sticker. A total of 235 fans “jammed the gym” for the game!
