On Monday, October 14, 2019, the Bloomfield Bombers girls’ volleyball teams will Dig Pink! Bloomfield will host Penn Yan in a volleyball fundraising match as they collaborate with the Side-Out Foundation, a national non-profit organization which empowers athletes to fight Stage IV breast cancer by raising funds to sponsor targeted therapy clinical trials.
We will host this year’s event in memory of Meg Murphy: former MS/HS nurse, Drama Club devotee, and one of Bloomfield’s biggest hearts. The girls’ volleyball teams will conduct raffles and hold a silent auction of items donated by local businesses. And, of course, there will be action-packed volleyball! There is no fee to attend but pink jars will be on-site to collect monetary donations from guests.
Side-Out has provided the girls on the Bloomfield Bombers volleyball teams with the perfect avenue by which to effect change and make a difference. Side-Out and the Bloomfield Bombers believe, as Nelson Mandela said, that “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
We hope that on October 14th you will shine a spotlight on the Bloomfield Bombers during their Dig Pink! fundraising event. Each volleyball player has worked hard to make this evening one of fun competition while also bringing awareness to The Side-Out Protocol to fund targeted therapy clinical trials in treating Stage IV Breast Cancer. You will find the details of the event and contact information below. Thank you!
