Dig Pink & Teal Raises Over $5000 for Cancer Research!

Shawnee High School Dig Pink & Teal Game Raises Over $5,000 for Cancer Research

Shawnee Girls Volleyball played Seneca on October 23rd for the 11th annual Dig Pink and Teal Volleyball game.  With the gym decorated in Pink and Teal, the true winner of the evening was the fight against cancer as the team sold over 1,000 t-shirts, held a bake sale, accepted donations, and held a dine & donate for a total profit of over $5,000.  The money will be donated to the Side Out Foundation and the American Cancer Society for Breast and Ovarian Cancer research, respectively.

Margaret Fanourgakis, Shawnee’s Volleyball coach, said, “This was the most we’ve raised and even in our 11th year it is stronger than ever.  I couldn’t be more proud of my team, parents, and the community for their support in our mission to end cancer.”

Mr. Marty Rotindo's Graphic Presentations students teamed up with the Girls Volleyball team and created flyers for the Dig Pink volleyball game. The eighty unique flyers were posted in all of the classrooms to help promote this special event.
