Viera-Holy Trinity to meet in 9th annual Pink Game


Published:

It will be must-see volleyball at the Viera High gym Tuesday night.

The Hawks will host Holy Trinity in the ninth annual “Pink Game.” Proceeds from the match will go to the Side-Out Foundation, a non-profit that raises money through volleyball to support breast cancer research and educational services.

It will mark the first time Viera and Holy Trinity have faced each other in the annual “Pink Game” with all three levels taking part. The freshman match is set for 5:15 p.m., followed by the JV contest at 6:15 and the varsity match at 7:15.

In addition, spectators can enter a serving contest to win prizes and purchase raffle tickets to win gift baskets. Students have been selling “Dig Pink” T-shirts and silicone bracelets while also collecting loose change.

The school that collects the most change will get quite the reward. A selected student will get to “pie” an administrator. Should Holy Trinity win, Junior High Dean of Students Tracy Biggs will get a pie in the face. Viera principal Mike Alba is on the hook if the Hawks win.

Entry is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Each spectator will receive a free raffle ticket with admission.

The game has raised more than $15,000 over the years and the hope is that this will be the most successful year yet.

After all, this year’s “Pink Game” has wonderful prizes, supports a great cause, and features two excellent local teams.

You can’t go wrong with that.

“Two of the top volleyball teams in Brevard County will come together to compete, but also work together,” Hawks coach Sarah Wayne said.
