Paint it pink, for breast cancer awareness

Volleyball hosts its multi-day breast cancer awareness event this week.

Paint it Pink, on College Avenue

The Paint It Pink event will be on Oct. 13 and 14, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day. Team members will do pink face painting, pink hairspray and pink hair feathers for passers-by. All donations from this event will go to the Cone Health Mammography Scholarship. The athletics booth will be set up behind the EUC on College Avenue. (On Friday, the booth may be in the EUC.) CAB and UNCG Weekend will also take part in this effort. Come get painted up – at least a little – for a great cause.

Two games at Fleming Gym

The two special matches will be:
Oct 14 v. Davidson, 7 p.m.
Oct. 15 v. Georgia Southern, 7 p.m.

Gates open at 6 p.m. both nights.

Athletics will have pink merchandise for sale and will have doing pink face painting and painting pink posters. Fans are encouraged to wear pink. All proceeds will go to the Cone Health mammography scholarship.

Fans can also pledge an amount of money per “dig.” The total amount of digs from both games will be multiplied by their pledge. For example, a $.10 pledge for 100 digs will be a $10 donation. Pledge cards will be at the entrance of the gym at Friday’s game. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

The team’s goal for this year is $5,000.
