PULLMAN, Wash. -- For the eighth consecutive year, the Washington State University women's volleyball team is conducting the Attacking Breast Cancer (ABC) Pink Campaign Pledge Drive to raise fund for the Breast Cancer Support Group of the Palouse, known as the Bosom Buddies.
Players are gathering pledges for WSU team kills landed during the home matches in the month of October. Donors may pledge an amount per kill or a flat amount. The WSU volleyball team has raised $9,119.15 in the first seven years of the ABC Campaign with all the money going to the Breast Cancer Support Group of the Palouse and its educational programs.
The Washington State versus Washington match, Friday, October 23, will be part of the Pacific-10 Conference Breast Cancer Awareness month of matches where the players, coaches, staff, spirit groups and even Butch, the WSU mascot, wear pink. The first 100 fans to check-in at the contest booth Oct. 23 will receive a special T-shirt with the ABC Pink Campaign logo.
The Cougars are currently second in the Pac-10 and 10th in the NCAA in kills per set with an average of 14.35. To donate to the 2009 ABC Pink Campaign, contact WSU Volleyball Assistant Coach TeAna Tramel at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 509-335-0275.
