‘Dig Pink’ Volleyball Match Fights Breast Cancer
Tuesday, September 29, 2009
SIOUX FALLS – Augustana’s volleyball team is hosting a “Dig Pink” event when it entertains the University of Minnesota, Crookston in a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference match on Saturday, October 10.
The match begins at 4:00 p.m. in the Elmen Center’s Hall Sports Forum. All proceeds go to the Side-out Foundation, a non-profit organization combining the love of volleyball with the passion to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer.
Information tables will be set up and reading materials on breast cancer will be available for fans attending the match. It is hoped women battling breast cancer, as well as breast cancer survivors, will stand with the Augustana players for pre-match announcements.
Following the match, a reception will be held at Chammps to honor breast cancer survivors.
