Girls Varsity Volleyball Digs for a Cure


Senior Elisabeth P., left, and Senior Co-captain Lauren K. worked to raise as much money as possible at the bake sale, and by the beginning of 11th period had sold almost all of the food.

The Jericho girls varsity volleyball team recently participated in their annual Dig Pink bake sale and game which raises money for breast cancer research.

The bake sale was very successful thanks to extensive advertising and sweet treats. The team devoted an entire practice to making posters and spent time at home making baked goods in order to attract as many people to their bake sale as possible. In total, they raised $437. The money raised is donated to Susan G. Komen, an organization that uses 95% of the funds for cancer research according to Coach Herbert.

Advertising throughout the school leading up to the bake sale and game contributed to the team’s fundraising success.

According to Senior Co-captain Karli S., “Every year we get a newly designed t-shirt that we wear not only for the Dig Pink game but for the rest of our season.” The shirts are usually pink, but this year the team decided to make them white with pink writing. She also added that a large Dig Pink poster was hung in the gym to spread more awareness for breast cancer. 

Unfortunately, the team gave up a win to Glen Cove 3 games to 1. However, the evening was still considered an overwhelming success.
