The proceeds from all Dig Pink donations, ticket sales, and bake sale will benefit the Side-Out Foundation. The Side-Out Foundation was established in 2004 by a group of individuals drawn together by their love of volleyball along with their 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 and to provide education and awareness about this disease through the activity of volleyball.

The girls team and the Side-Out Foundation thank our sponsor Palmers Market for their donations.
