Dig pink is a match that doubles as a fundraiser, each school volleyball team runs it in order to raise money to support cancer patients. Perkiomen Valley had their Dig Pinkgame on October 2nd this year. They raised money by selling tickets and T-shirts that gave free admission to the game. The money they raised was given to Helen’s Angels and another local charity called the Side-Out Foundation.
Michelle Burke, one of the people in charge of this event, said, “We chose to split the proceeds this year to not only support a great National Organization but also a local organization that helps people directly in our community. The players, parents, coaches, Athletic Director and the community, all contributed to the success of the event.”
2750 total dollars was raised, which was 1250 dollars more then the previous years fundraiser, all of which was donated to Helen’s Angels. This money was raised partially due to some new added additions added to the fundraise such as a basket raffle. Kathy Albertson, a patient care coordinator was in charge of the new fundraiser that the money was split with.
Junior varsity won both sets against Spring-Ford while the varsity volleyball team ended up losing all three sets. The varsity volleyball team sung the national anthem, and and after the game threw T-shirts and small volleyballs to the student section. Despite the loss, it was a very fun night.
“It creates a unique experience and it is so much fun to be playing for such a great cause.” said Quinn Boettinger, varsity player.
