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!
