BUTLER TWP — Butler County Community College will host Project Pink Oct. 7 to 11 to raise funds for breast cancer research.
The campaign will culminate with a 2019 Dig Pink volleyball game on BC3's main campus, where the Pioneers will swap their blue and white uniforms for pink in an Oct. 11 Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference matchup with Pennsylvania Highlands Community College.
Other ways to support Pink Week include:
- In the main campus Project Pink tent, BC3 volunteers will sell long-sleeved 2019 Dig Pink shirts for $18, short-sleeved shirts for $12, and one gift-basket raffle ticket for $1, 10 for $5 and 25 for $10.
- Students in BC3's social awareness club will place donation buckets in the college bookstore in the Student Success Center, the Pioneer CafÚ in Founders Hall and in Logan CafÚ in the Heaton Family Learning Commons, and possibly at other main campus sites.
- BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing and BC3 @ LindenPointe plan gift-basket and 50-50 raffles, ribbon and 2019 Dig Pink shirt pre-sales, and Project Pink week donation buckets. BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing will also sell pizza, potato chips and bottled water for $2 with proceeds also benefiting the Side-Out Foundation.
- BC3 @ Armstrong plans ribbon sales and gift-basket raffles, as does BC3 @ Cranberry, which also will have Dig Pink shirt pre-sales.
- BC3 @ Brockway plans ribbon sales and placing a donation bucket.
- BC3 employees will also be able to authorize Oct. 31 payroll deductions to benefit the Side-Out Foundation.
Those unable to participate in activities on BC3’s main campus or its additional locations can donate to BC3’s Project Pink week, or pay for a 2019 Dig Pink shirt, at https://giving.side-out.org/campaigns/15909.
Those visiting the site can click on the pink “Donate” button, identify the amount of the donation, and if seeking to purchase a 2019 Dig Pink shirt, check the “Give in honor or memory of a loved one” and type Dig Pink shirt in the message box.
Donors are also asked to check the box covering the processing fee so that 100 percent of the donation benefits the Side-Out Foundation.
