BDHS volleyball hosts two spirit nights to help raise money for Trevor’s Treasures and  the IIIB’s foundation, a breast cancer charity. They raise money for these organizations by having games, raffles, and bake sales. Everything raffled is donated from local businesses and parents, and the money this team makes from these nights goes right back to the organization to support those who are battling or survived cancer.

Trevor Blake lost his fight against Neuroblastoma at age 11 in 2013.  He had the idea to raise money, host toy drives, and do whatever he could to make sure the other kids in the hospital were living a comfortable life.  Their mission is simple – to put a smile on the face of every child that is sitting in a hospital battling cancer. They do this by bringing presents at Christmas time, organizing fun activities throughout the year and bringing in local athletes and celebrities to meet the children. The IIIB’s foundation creates what they call “Bosom Buddy Baskets”. The IIIB’s Foundation is dedicated to providing comfort to women recovering from breast cancer mastectomy surgery by providing Bosom Buddy Baskets filled with valuable resources and recovery items to ensure no woman faces breast cancer alone.

During the games on both nights the team sets up fun activities and raffles to help raise money. These activities include cake walks, bake sale, serving games, and raffles – all set up with fun prizes. All the prizes that are raffled off and given away are donated by parents or local businesses. In between the Varsity sets the girls set up hula hoops and had a serving game, where shooting a hoop wins a prize. Another interactive game is the cake walk, which is like musical chairs. When the music stops, participants must get on a number and then a number is picked, and the person on the winning number gets to pick a treat. The raffle tickets are only one dollar, and prizes include huge baskets or various other things. The best part is choosing which basket to put the raffle ticket in, so winners already know what their prize is going to be. The items that are sold during the bake sale are made by parents and those who want to help support the foundation.

For these games, the volleyball players wear special jerseys. For Trevor’s Treasures night, Varsity wears baby blue and the JV team wears lime green. These represent the colors of the foundation, and they were also Trevor’s favorite colors. On the back of the girl’s jerseys it says Trevor’s name and their number.  For IIB’s night both JV and Varsity wore pink shirts made by a team mom which say, “Dig for the cure BRENTSVILLE”. The players not only wore these jerseys to just the games, but they wore them all day at school to make sure everyone knew to come to the game

Of course, the girls go all out on decorating the gyms for these nights. For the IIB’s night, the gym was decked out in pink. There were posters, streamers, donation buckets and a pray wall. The pray wall was set up in the hallway and people could write the name of a loved one who is fighting or lost the fight to cancer. The game is played with a pink and white volleyball instead of black and orange. All of the BDHS volleyball players had pink shoelaces and pink ribbons in their hair. On Trevor’s Treasures night, the gym was all baby blue and lime green. There were posters explaining what the organization was and how they help kids battling cancer. Once again, there was a pray wall in the hallway, right in the doorway where everyone would see it. Keeping in with the theme, the girls played with a baby blue and lime green ball.

Overall these girls put so much time and effort into raising money for these organizations. All the money made goes directly to the charity organizations to help fund cancer research and support those who have struggled or are struggling with cancer.
