The LVHS Varsity and JV Volleyball teams took pink to a new level, raising more than $600 _most of it in just over an hour - for breast cancer research. The team hosted its first annual “Dig Pink” scrimmage, holding a pre-game bake sale which offered all types of homemade pink goodies, from volleyball shaped cookies, to pink cupcakes. Locust Valley students happily lined up to support a good cause.

To keep in the spirit of the event and remind attendees of its importance, the teams wore pink shirts, played with pink breast cancer awareness volleyballs, and thanked everyone for their generosity. Due to the success of “Dig Pink”, the teams hope it will grow each year.  Plans are already underway to increase fundraising and make an even bigger difference next year!
