ECC Announces “Pink” and “Fight Like a Volleyballer” Week Schedule

Central Islip, N.Y. - Beginning with last night’s volleyball contest at NYIT, the East Coast Conference and its member institutions will host over 20 games throughout October as part of its Pink and Fight Like a Volleyballer Lavender Week initiatives.
ECC Pink Week festivities will be hosted by each men’s and women’s soccer team in the conference. At the selected contests, $2 donations will be taken in lieu of admission being charged. ECC Pink Week t-shirts will also be sold for $10. All proceeds from each Pink Week game will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

ECC volleyball teams will host the Fight Like a Volleyballer Lavender Week games. Lavender is the color of the general cancer awareness ribbon. As with ECC Pink Week, $2 donations will be collected at the door and t-shirts will be sold for $10 with all proceeds going to the Dana Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Institute.

In addition to gate donations and t-shirt sales, ECC member schools will also sell prize packs, ribbons, and host 50/50 raffles to collect for the respective charitable organizations associated with the Pink and Lavender weeks.
