PENSACOLA, Fla. – The West Florida volleyball team will host the seventh annual “Pack it Pink” breast cancer awareness match against Lee University on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 4 p.m. CT in the UWF Field House. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and UWF is joining the effort to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness while also paying tribute to family members and friends who have been affected by the disease.

Donations will be accepted in lieu of tickets for the match, which will be preceded by a reception for cancer survivors at 2:30 p.m. in the Argonaut Athletic Club. The first 400 fans to arrive also receive a “Pack it Pink” T-shirt. The West Florida volleyball team is looking for your help to break the “Pack it Pink” attendance record at the UWF Field House.

As in years past, a silent auction will run in conjunction with the event and will feature an autographed Martin St. Louis Tampa Bay Lighting jersey, a volleyball signed by the USA Volleyball team, pink jerseys, volleyballs, gift cards, and much more which can be bid on online or in person during the Lee match.
