On October 6, 2022, the Lady Bison volleyball team hosted the Lady Mounties of Philipsburg Osceola for their annual “Think Pink” night. Even though the Bison didn’t win, they were able to make a great impact on a member of the community.

Coach Bailor and the volleyball booster club plan the event every year. Coach Bailor says that, “It helps to schedule the event with a school that is in the area. It helps with having the fan base to help us raise money for that evening.” The idea behind this choice is that closer the school is to ours, the more likely their fans are to come and spend money at the various fundraising efforts such as 50/50, raffle baskets, a bake sale, and monetary donations.

In order to choose the recipient for the money the booster club discusses members of the community struggling with breast cancer. “There are a lot of times we have family members of our team who are battling cancer, which would be our first choice, then we look at any other community member that is also battling cancer,” coach Bailor says. If no one fits one of these two categories, the funds have been donated to the Clearfield County Cancer Support Group.

After a very successful night, the “Think Pink” game was able to raise $2300 and $100 in gift certificates for high school paraprofessional Michelle Carns who is currently battling breast cancer. Thank you to everyone involved in making this worthwhile event another success.
