High School sports in the Anchorage School District support a variety of charities. This October, our volleyball players show off their charitable spirit.
If you walk into any high school gym this month you may be blinded by girls “digging pink” as part of their effort to bring awareness to breast cancer.
During the month of October, teams rally behind this theme. Each school has a different way of showing their support, but Eagle River High School’s celebration is second to none.
The Lady Wolves’ celebration showcases their dedication, love, and support for those in our community who are fighting breast cancer. In lieu of raising funds for a national organization, the Lady Wolves select a strong woman in our community who is fighting the good fight and honor her with a cash gift.
This gift from the Lady Wolves is hers to do whatever she needs to improve her quality of life. Whether that is paying a bill, purchasing medicine or just going to the spa to relax for the day! She is in control! This simple gesture has an immeasurable impact on the recipient and her family.
This year, as in past years, the Lady Wolves will raise their Pink Night funds by selling baked goods and accepting donations during their home games.
If you wish to help the Lady Wolves in this endeavor you can contribute to Pink Night by contacting Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org, and by showing your support during the games.
See you in the Wolve’s Den!
October 6th and 7th.
Pink Night is October 10th.
The final home game will be on October 17.
C-team games: 5:00 pm

Note to readers: According to 501(c)(3) rules, in which most booster clubs fall, raising funds for their philanthropic cause must be separate from the funds raised for the teams needs.
