Photos: Naugy, Wolcott Go Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

The girls' volleyball teams from both schools wore pink, and the fans did, too, to show support for those suffering from breast cancer. The event also raised money for a cure.

 

NAUGATUCK - The fourth-annual Pink Volleyball Game between Naugatuck and Wolcott high schools was held Tuesday at Naugatuck High School to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

For the past four years, the girls volleyball team at NHS has partnered with the national organization to raise awareness of cancer and money for the organization.

Those in attendence bought pink beads, key chains, cupcakes, cookies and lollipops, among others. The volleyball team also sold pink ribbons for $1 apiece.

All proceeds will go toward American Cancer Society. The girls will put the money toward a walk in which team members will participate on Sunday, Oct. 14, called American Cancer Society Making Strides. 

Editor's Note: Naugatuck High School student Cara Rotatori shared these photos with us. They are wonderful, and we thank her for her efforts!

Fred and all coaches: We'd love to provide coverage of high school teams, but obviously cannot make all events. Can you please provide us with scores and highlights of games by emailing paul.singley@patch.com? I will post them immediately. Thanks! I know you guys have a lot to do so this is much appreciated. I want to give the players as much publicity as possible.
