The USC Upstate athletic department, along with the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, will be hosting a Dig Pink Night on Friday as the Spartan volleyball team takes on Lipscomb at 6 p.m. from the Hodge Center.

Zeta Tau Alpha will have a table set up at the main entrance of the Hodge Center to accept donations as well as hand out pink ribbons for fans to wear during the match. Posters will be made in support of breast cancer awareness and the Upstate volleyball players. The Spartans encourage fans to paint the Hodge Center pink by dressing in pink to show support for the breast cancer awareness initiatives.

All proceeds donated during the match will go to The Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness and Education.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and admission to the match is free.

Founded in 1982, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure helps save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and investing in science to find the cures.
