Thu, 10/21/2010 (All day)

The Spring Hill College volleyball team (20-2) will return home to the Arthur R. Outlaw Recreation Center on Saturday, Oct. 23, to host its “Dig Pink” event to raise awareness for the prevention of and battle against breast cancer during the squad’s 3 p.m. conference match versus Belhaven University.

Badger fans are encouraged to wear pink, and donations to Breast Cancer Research will be accepted throughout the match. All ticket proceeds and concessions profits will be donated to the fight against breast cancer. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Save the Ta-tas Foundation, a nonprofit organization.

The Save the Ta-tas Foundation was founded in 2008 in Canoga Park, Calif., by Julia Fiske. The Save the Ta-tas Foundation has raised more than $418,000 to date and funds innovative research for fresh approaches to the fight against cancer.
