Going pink for Dig Pink



Everything is different this year, but one thing has not changed – Carrollton celebrates Dig Pink.

On October 9, pink was everywhere. Most members of the Carrollton community participated in the dress down fundraiser. Money was also raised through T- shirt sales, and promotions provided by Apizza Brooklyn and Whip ‘n Dip. 

The Carrollton Varsity and Junior Varsity volleyball teams competed in matches against Miami Country Day School, and won. Because of the many COVID-19 safety precautions, there were not the usual pep rallies and fans were unable to attend the games in person, but many tuned in to watch the live-stream games. “We had over 150 people tune into the YouTube channel to watch the game and we received only positive reactions! “Of course, most people expressed how they missed the excitement of watching in person, but were grateful for being able to still watch live.” wrote Claudia Garcia, Assistant Athletic Director. 

Dig Pink is a special fundraiser designed to support the Side-Out Foundation – both a nonprofit and research organization committed to providing life-extending solutions and hope for those with stage IV breast cancer, and promote awareness. 

 “I was very proud that the Carrollton community still rallied around this wonderful cause despite not being able to celebrate as we usually do.” wrote Ms. Garcia.
