Soldotna volleyball to host Pink Out on Thursday

The Soldotna High School volleyball team will host a Pink Out match against Kenai Central on Thursday.

The Stars will use the nonconference match against the Kardinals to raise money for the Central Peninsula Health Foundation.

The matches are at 3:30 p.m. for C-team, 4:30 p.m. for junior varsity and 6 p.m. for varsity.

The gate will go to the Central Peninsula Health Foundation, as will the proceeds from a dessert auction, which includes coffee donated by Kaladi Brothers.

The evening also will feature a chance for a fan to push $1,000 to the health foundation. There will be three pizza boxes on the floor, and fans will have a chance to come down and try to serve to hit the boxes. When one of the boxes is hit, the $1,000 goes to the foundation.

“It’s harder than you think,” Soldotna coach Sheila Kupferschmid said.

The money was donated by Dolifka and Associates, Kendall Ford, Magnum Motors, McDonald’s and Koob Chiropractic.

The final way the Stars will raise money is by doing a serve-a-thon Friday. The team members have been out collecting pledges.

The evening will also have personal gifts for three in the volleyball community battling breast cancer.

Finally, the match is also senior night, with seven seniors, including the team manager, getting honored.
