Washington University Volleyball hosts “Dig for Pink” night Friday, Sept. 27

The Washington University in St. Louis volleyball team will host its annual “Dig for Pink” night during its 7:15 p.m. match against University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Friday, Sept. 27. Prior to Dig for Pink night, the Bears will hold a benefit night at Chill Frozen Yogurt Tuesday, Sept. 24, in Clayton.

The frozen-yogurt benefit will be 6-10 p.m. Tuesday at Chill, 7610 Wydown Blvd., Clayton. Customers must say they are at Chill for the Dig for Pink event when purchasing their frozen yogurt, and Chill will donate 20 percent of such sales to Dig for Pink.

The Bears also will raise money during the Dig for Pink match against Wisconsin-Eau Claire. WUSTL seat cushions and special Dig for Pink T-shirts will be sold. There also will be several raffle items, including two pink game balls, gift baskets from Vineyard Vines, and a Pupu Kine shirt, a clothing brand started by WUSTL senior and football player Andrew Skalman.

All proceeds from the benefit night at Chill, as well as the the Dig for Pink night, will be donated to WUSTL’s Siteman Cancer Center to help fund its program that provides free mammograms for underprivileged women. Everyone attending the match is encouraged to wear pink.

The team also will take time during the match against Wisconsin-Eau Claire to honor breast cancer survivors and those currently battling breast cancer in attendance.
