Three area high school volleyball teams are working together to raise money in the fight against cancer.  The "Digging for a Cure" event will be held at PikeView High School on Tuesday evening.

The Lady Panthers will tip off against the Liberty Raiders and the James Monroe Mavericks at PikeView High School.  The games begin at 5 p.m., but starting at 4 p.m. there will be a "Think Pink" Spaghetti dinner that will last until 7 p.m. 

The dinner is just $6 at the door and money will go to Amber Dickerson, a PikeView graduate who has been diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Dickerson is unable to work because of her chemotherapy treatments. A check will be presented to Dickerson between the JV and Varsity games.

Also during the event, the PikeView FCA will sponsor their 3rd annual "Locks of Love" drive.  Anyone interested in donating 10 inches or more of hair can go courtside during the games where a hairstylist will be available to cut their hair.

Fans are encouraged to wear pink during the event to support cancer survivors.  All cancer survivors who are at the event will be acknowledged during the ceremony between the JV and Varsity.
