Varsity and junior varsity volleyball players ditched their usual Falcon uniforms to wear pink during their annual Dig Pink fundraiser and nonleague game against Glen Cove High School.

The Falcons held a bake sale, with the proceeds going to the Dig Pink Side-Out Foundation. Dig Pink is a national breast cancer rally organized by the Side-Out Foundation, which encourages middle school and high school volleyball teams to hold events supporting the cause each October.

The pink-themed bake sale raised more than $500 for the cause, but just as importantly, raised awareness of an important topic. Varsity coach Bobbee Brancaccio said the event means a lot to the volleyball players. ‘They want to see fewer people diagnosed with cancer, and this is one way they can make a difference,” she said.
