Archbishop Williams High School will host a Dig Pink volleyball game against Holbrook High as a Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets to the varsity game are $5 and all proceeds go toward the Side-Out Foundation, established in 2004 with a goal of bringing volleyball players and coaches together to promote breast cancer awareness. It also awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families.
Prior to the varsity game, there will be a faculty v. students game at 3 p.m. and a junior varsity game at 5 p.m. There will also be a bake sale and several raffles including a 50/50 raffle. Kerri Saunders Haer, formerly of Milton, who was a finalist in community auditions and also a breast cancer survivor, will be singing the National Anthem.
The varsity girls are having a great season this year, they are 8-4 and need just one more win to make it to tournament play. The girls will be facing Holbrook High school (11-3) led by coach Vincent Hayward. The lady Bishops are led by senior captains Christine Chase (Cohasset) and Monica Nowak (Braintree).
