The Hotchkiss volleyball program is seeking sponsors and donations for its Oct. 6 Pink Out games against Paonia. Each year the Colorado High School Activities Association, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, promotes breast cancer awareness during the month of October, which is also National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Schools are encouraged by the CHSAA to "think pink" and come up with ways to promote awareness at a home volleyball match sometime in October.
The evening will include a bake sale, silent auction items, and door prizes. All proceeds from the game and related fundraising efforts will support the oncology department at Delta County Memorial Hospital. The volleyball team is seeking sponsors for the event. In addition to being recognized at the games, pink balloons will be placed in front of all sponsoring businesses.
To date, Pitt Construction, Tucker's Pizza, Kristian Hill PT, L&M Salon, Weekender Sport, Pat's Bar & Grill, Safeway, Needlerock Mountain Realty, Black Diamond Electric, Plexus by Denies Regelman, Limelight by Jenni West, Cowboy Brand Furniture/Page Johns, 1440 Image Apparel, Angel Sign Co., Zack's BBQ, Hotchkiss Flowers, Mark Construction and People Care Health Services have already signed up as sponsors, according to organizer Sundee Shoemaker.
Sponsors will have pink balloons placed at their business on game day. For details, contact HHS at 872-3882.
