Since 2008, the Sayville Varsity and Junior Varsity Volleyball teams have been participating in Dig Pink, the national fundraising effort for Breast Cancer Awareness, organized by The Side-Out Foundation and Suffolk County Girls Volleyball.
Each year, this athletic event among the High School Volleyball programs in all of Suffolk County has grown, bringing awareness and a sense of purpose in fighting Breast Cancer. Sayville Volleyball Coach Debbie Urso has expressed great enthusiasm for the traditional collaboration of running a DIG PINK and scheduling matches during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Sayville’s recent game against Harborfields, played on Sayville’s home court, was another success. “So far, we raised $750,” Coach Urso said, “and we won 3 to 1."
Coach Urso also acknowledged the annual success of this fundraiser is due to the tremendous assistance of the players and their families who have pitched in to help with baked goods, donations, and overall support.
Donations to fight Breast Cancer can still be made online at the Side-Out Foundation Dig Pink website.
