The Herricks High School volleyball teams recently hosted “Dig Pink Night”, the annual breast cancer fundraiser that aims to help “spike out” breast cancer.
The Herricks teams were joined by Great Neck North High School boys and Elmont High School girls volleyball teams for this year’s event, which saw the Herricks High School gymnasium transformed into a veritable sea of pink as both spectators and team members turned out in support.
The event raised over $1,200 for the Side-Out Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer primarily through volleyball-related events. This year’s donation brings the total raised by the Herricks school community to over $15,000 since 2009.
