Join the fight against breast cancer at the Dig Pink volleyball game on Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Brookhaven College gymnasium.
In this annual fundraiser, the Brookhaven College Lady Bears, now ranked No. 2 in the National Junior College Athletic Association polls, will take on the Cedar Valley College Lady Suns.
The team is asking that everyone who comes to the game donate $5, but entry into the game is free and any donation will be accepted. All proceeds will benefit the Side-Out Foundation for breast cancer research.
The players will wear pink jerseys during the game, and patrons are encouraged to wear pink as well.
The team's goal this year is to raise $1,000, said Jason Hopkins, head volleyball coach. Last year, the team exceeded its goal, bringing in $1,200.
Get out, support the team, and raise money for breast cancer research!
