DOYLESTOWN, PA — Players from the Central Bucks High School East and West girls’ volleyball teams presented proceeds of $975 from their annual “Pink Out” event to benefit patients of Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute on Monday, December 21, 2020.
The annual Pink Out event was held at Central Bucks East High School in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month with added adjustments due to the pandemic. Instead of spectators, raffle drawings, and bake sales, the teams collected donations from family members and peers. While the event may have looked different this year, the teams felt it was important to support the Cancer Institute in any way they could. Since 2014, the dedicated teams have raised more than $17,000 for the Cancer Institute. Doylestown Health is appreciative of the extraordinary support of the community and its commitment to giving back.
“We are grateful the Central Bucks Girls’ volleyball teams, coaches, and families were motivated to donate again this year, even under these unusual circumstances,” said Garrett Owen, Director of Development at Doylestown Health.
