Albany, N.Y. – The University at Albany volleyball team will be sponsoring a “Dig Pink” event on Wednesday, Oct. 15 as the Great Danes host crosstown-rival Siena at University Gymnasium. Match time is 7:00 p.m. Dig Pink, established by the Side-Out Foundation, is a National Breast Cancer awareness rally that is taking place throughout the month of October, sponsored by high schools and colleges across the country.
The Side-Out Foundation was established in 2004 by a group of individuals drawn together by their love of volleyball and a shared passion to be a part of the war against breast cancer. Side-Out’s mission is to raise money for the war against breast cancer through the recreational activity of volleyball. The Side-Out Foundation is a Virginia-based 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization with a serving Board of Directors and advisors from the healthcare sector to provide oversight and guidance regarding the strategic direction and recommended allocation of donations and grants.
The match, which will be televised on Time Warner Cable (TW3), will feature several tributes to breast cancer victims, survivors and those continuing the fight. There will be areas for spectators to learn more about breast cancer and the Side-Out Foundation, and they will have the opportunity to make donations to support the organization’s mission. More information is available at www.digpink.org and at www.side-out.org. Greg Tobben and Andrew Catalon will serve as the TW3 broadcast team.
