Volleyball Begins 'Dig for the Cure' Campaign

BATON ROUGE — LSU kicks off its part of “Dig For the Cure” in this weekend’s volleyball matches in the Maravich Center versus Ole Miss on Friday at 7 p.m. and Arkansas on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and will conclude the month-long campaign against Florida on Oct. 24.

This is a nationwide campaign that benefits Komen for the Cure in its efforts to raise awareness of the breast cancer disease and research toward its prevention and cure.

For LSU’s role, donation tables will be placed at arena entrances for the Ole Miss, Arkansas and Florida matches, and fans can donate by making a pledge per dig or by making a flat donation (Complete Promotions schedule).

To wrap up the campaign, there will be a “Pink Carnival” against Florida on Oct. 24. All carnival ticket proceeds will benefit Komen for the Cure. There will also be a raffle where fans can win LSU gear.

Additionally, fans who wear pink to the Florida match will receive free admission and the first 200 fans will receive free pink cotton candy.

In addition to Dig for the Cure kickoff, this Friday’s match against Ole Miss also is a Student Points Night with a chance for students to win TigerCash and it is Elena Martinez night as well. Sunday’s match with Arkansas is World Teachers Day, and fans can receive free admission with the donation of a school supply item benefiting Teach for America, such as pencils, notebooks, pens and similar school supply items. Mike the Tiger mascot will be available from 12:30-1:15 p.m. for pictures in the Kid Zone.
