There will be free pink popcorn at the volleyball match, sponsored by the Off-Campus Housing Organization and Penn College Athletics, and a $50 Sheetz gift card will be awarded to the "pinkest" person in attendance. Information about breast cancer will be available and donations to the Making Strides Foundation will be accepted.
