The Penn College community dressed accordingly and supported the Wildcat women’s volleyball team in its “Pink Out” match against Elmira College on Tuesday night. Held in Bardo Gym in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the match included free cotton candy and miniature glow-in-the-dark throw volleyballs – and a $100 gift-card giveaway to the “pinkest” person in attendance, as judged by fan applause. The match was sponsored by the Off-Campus Housing Organization, Healthy Wildcats and the Athletics department.

    Thank you for providing more local awareness and involvement for the continued battle with breast cancer. Your event occurred the same evening as our initial planning meeting for the May 16-17, 2014, Relay for Life to be held at Williamsport Area High School.
