    Raising $2,800

    for Breast Cancer Research


    Again this year for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our Sayville Girls Volleyball Varsity and Junior Varsity teams participated in 2009 DIG PINK, the national fundraising effort, organized by The Side-Out Foundation and Suffolk County Girls Volleyball.


    And in one afternoon, they raised $2,800 for Breast Cancer Research!


    Everywhere pink balloons, T-shirts, baked goods, and Dig Pink posters served as reminders that this scrimmage game against Rocky Point had an ambitious outcome. While the Sayville Girls volleyed for points on their home court, supporters in the audience, which also included the pep band, cheerleaders, and Field Hockey players (who also held a similar Breast Cancer fundraiser at a recent game), rallied to dig deep and make donations for this worthy cause.


    Despite the torrential rainfall on the day of scrimmage, Girls Volleyball Coach Debbie Urso was enthusiastic about the fundraiser and expressed sincere gratitude for everyone who came down and showed support. Their tremendous success in raising $2,800 was truly the result of the combined efforts of the coaches, team players, and Sayville community. Sayville Athletic Directory Charles M. Delargy also had high words of appreciation and praise for Coach Debbie Urso, JV Coach Tiffany Rowan, Volunteer Coach Jim McLoughlin, and Cheerleader Coach Dawn Thelian, as well as for the cheerleaders, and especially for all the players who showcased extraordinary dedication in the fight against Breast Cancer.
