DOLGEVILLE — The Dolgeville Central School girls’ varsity and junior varsity volleyball teams will take to the court for the Friday, Jan. 11, matchup with Remsen looking to score not only a home victory, but additional support for the American Cancer Society.
The school will hold its third Coaches vs. Cancer night — second for the volleyball teams — which is a national effort by high school and collegiate coaches to raise awareness and funds to further research, education, advocacy and patient service programs through the American Cancer Society.
The games will begin at 5:30 p.m. at James A. Green High School in Dolgeville.
The players are taking orders for daffodils, selling pinup cards, hosting a bake sale and holding a 50/50 in support of the cause, as well as a basket and gift card raffle.
"Cancer affects everyone in one way or another," said Melanie Francis, staff partner for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Herkimer County, in a news release. "We’re grateful to Dolgeville Central School and the coaches for hosting this event. We hope the community will come out and root for the girls and support the coaches’ efforts to make a difference in the fight against cancer."
