Before, during and after the volleyball match there will be many special events such as Silent Auctions, raffles, serve a thon, giveaways, t-shirt sales, and much more!

 

The proceeds from all donations will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Penn State Mont Alto Women's Volleyball team
The Penn State Mont Alto Women's Volleyball Team has been very successful the past several years.  They have made it to playoffs and the national championship tournament the past two years.  Many ladies have been named USCAA All-Academic and All- Americans as well as have made PSUAC All-Conference teams.  They are not only successful in the classroom and on the court but they also have raised thousands of dollars for the Side-Out Foundation in the past 2 years.  Last year $3,000 was raised, this year their goal has gone up to $5,000.  Please come out and support the team as they are working very hard to reach this goal for such a great cause, the fight against breast cancer.

 

The Side-Out Foundation
The Side-Out Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 2004 to unite volleyball players and coaches and to have them work toward the common goal of making a significant and identifiable difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families. The organization's goal is to advance clinical trials, increase compassionate support services and educate communities. Side-Out

supports teams nationwide in their volleyball tournaments, clinics and other fundraising efforts. The

foundation offers practical support for fundraising in addition to educational material for participants in order to help them become effective advocates for breast cancer. It contributes the funds to organizations that serve breast cancer patients, whether it be in the form of research, medical services or compassionate support.

 

The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. It is hoped that Side-Out will do the same for breast cancer patients, providing them with the support, education and best available treatments to regain control of their lives.
