|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
HHS varsity volleyball team members and five cancer survivors are pictured just prior to the Monday, Sept. 30 volleyball game with Perkins County, Neb. Designated as the Pink Out game, the focus was on breast cancer awareness.
Pink Out night in the HHS gym Monday, Sept. 30 resulted in a successful breast cancer awareness event, as well as a fundraising effort for the Melissa Memorial Hospital Foundation to assist with costs related to mammograms and other breast cancer prevention.
And to top it off, the Dragon volleyball team won its game with Perkins County, Neb.
Dragon volleyball team members wore pink jerseys for the match, and many spectators wore pink, as well.
A pink volleyball, signed by the HHS team members, was auctioned off by Wayne Salyards just prior to the varsity game.
Breast cancer survivors then joined the team on the floor and were given pink carnations. The survivors included Kate Sumners, Mardell York, Amy Kropp, Bev Struckmeyer and Joyce Krueger.
Other honored guests, as announced at the game, were Claudia Powell, Cindy Wilbur, Beth Penfold, Ruth Kinnie, Donna Lutze, Sharon Murray and Wanda Winterrowd.
