RIDGELY — North Caroline High’s volleyball team hosts county rival Colonel Richardson on Monday, Oct. 14, for its 12th annual “Dig Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness Rally.
The teams and fans will come together at the rally with the goal of raising money for the Side-Out Foundation, which aims to make a significant difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families.
The rally begins at 4 p.m. at North Caroline High School near Ridgely with the JV game, and the varsity game follows. During the games will be raffles and contests.
Since its inception, the Caroline Dig Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Rally has raised more than $25,000 for breast cancer research. The Side-Out Foundation has raised $14 million to date for its research.
The term “side-out” refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. Using the game as a metaphor, the hope is the Side-Out Foundation will do the same for breast-cancer patients, providing them with support and the best available treatments to regain control of their lives.
There will also be a silent auction, concessions, baked goods, Chinese auction items, a photo booth, door-raffle items, a 50-50 raffle and the volleyball match.
A special event T-shirts also will be sold with all proceeds going to the Side-Out Foundation.
North Caroline’s volleyball team is seeking donations for the silent auction and door-prize raffles to go to the Side-Out Foundation.
For more information about ordering the T-shirt or making a donation for the event, contact North Caroline head volleyball coach Amanda Vanskiver at email@example.com.
