Dig Pink Fundraiser at Middle School


The middle school’s girls volleyball team held a Dig Pink game on Jan. 9, raising $500 for the Islip Breast Cancer Coalition. The fundraiser included sales of Dig Pink T-shirts as well as baked goods made by the students and their families.

The team members also created colorful posters during the holiday break, which were displayed around the school to advertise the event. Parents and members of the high school’s varsity and JV volleyball teams volunteered to man the booth.

Representatives from the Islip Breast Cancer Coalition presented the team with flowers prior to the game against West Islip’s Beach Middle School, which was attended by numerous pink-clad classmates cheering on the young athletes.
