Those in need of fitting attire for the “Pink Out” women’s volleyball game later this month found their solution Wednesday behind the Field House, where white T-shirts were tie-dyed pink in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Penn College community is encouraged to wear pink shirts – or hoodies or sweaters or headbands or whatever! – to Bardo Gym for a home contest against Penn State Berks, beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30. There will be free pink popcorn at the volleyball match, sponsored by the Off-Campus Housing Organization and Penn College Athletics, and a $50 Sheetz gift card will be awarded to the “pinkest” person in attendance. Information about breast cancer will be available and donations to the Making Strides Foundation will be accepted.
