The Whitesboro girls varsity volleyball team hosted its annual Cancer Awareness Pink Game Wednesday night. All donations benefit the Believe 271 Foundation.

The Warriors and VVS Red Devils battled it out on the court. The theme: 'Volley for the Cure.'

For about 8 years, the Whitesboro girls varsity volleyball team has worn pink jersey's and raffled off prizes. Each year the proceeds benefit cancer awareness.

This year, the donations go to the Believe 271 Foundation, a local organization that helps provide financial assistance to volunteer firefighters and EMT's who suffer life-threatening illnesses such as cancer.

"Well tonight is our pink game," said team captain Natallia Dzeravenets. "We are hosting a fundraiser for Believe 271, which is a local fundraiser that Whitesboro did for our power puff game that now we're doing for our pink game that we host to raise money for cancer in our local area."

"It's really cool because we get to experience something and we can help other people out," said team captain Erin Hermann. "It feels really good to that.

The winners of the gift baskets were announced during the game. Organizers said they raised $500 Wednesday night.
