Join Irish Volleyball For Sunday's Dig Pink Match

Oct. 21, 2011

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Notre Dame volleyball team will play host to USF on Sunday which will coincide with the program’s Dig Pink match.

Notre Dame raised a national-best $10,300 last fall in an effort to support Dig Pink, a national initiative devoted to promoting breast cancer awareness spearheaded by the Side-Out Foundation. The Irish also led the nation in 2008 by raising $6,655. The program aims once again to raise over $10,000 in 2011. The Secret Sisters Society of South Bend will receive a portion of this year’s proceeds.

Sunday’s BIG EAST Conference volleyball match again USF begins at 2:00 p.m. (ET).
