PINK is the Santa Clara Broncos color of the day on Oct. 17! Join the Broncos as they help raise funds to help eradicate Breast Cancer when the Santa Clara volleyball team hosts Gonzaga on Sat., Oct. 17 at 1 pm in its DIG PINK match.

Please see the special website setup for the event! If you can't make the match to donate in person, then you can donate online at: https://www.side-out.org/application/teams/team_page/1207

The Broncos have participated in this event for the past two years and are very excited for another year of success. Last year the Broncos raised more than $6,300 to support breast cancer education programs.

"The goal is raise as much money and awareness as we possibly can for this great cause," said Bronco head coach Jon Wallace.

Dig Pink attendees will watch the girls compete on the court while contributing to breast health awareness by making a statement and wearing something PINK in the stands. Admission will be $7.00 for all adult attendees and $5.00 for all children and senior attendees. All students get in to the match for FREE.

The proceeds from all donations will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) located in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

Side-Out Foundation

The Side-Out Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) located in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. They have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Breast Cancer research nationally through volleyball tournaments, clinics, and rallies. Funds are currently devoted to targeted therapies and molecular profiling which is where there is a hot bed of research activity. Side-Out also devotes a portion of the funds to local and national "Life with Cancer" support organizations.

Their name underscores the purpose of the organization - "Side-Out" in volleyball occurs when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. Likewise in the war against breast cancer, the Side-Out Foundation will support health care professionals in their pursuit of practical solutions for women and men with this dreaded disease thus enabling those affected to regain control of their lives and living them to the fullest.
