Chariton and Clarke County Teaming Up For Pink Out Volleyball Game, Proceeds to Benefit Local Hospitals

The Chariton Chargers and Clarke Indians are teaming up to host a “Pink Out” game on Tuesday, September 26th to raise funds for local hospitals and cancer patients.

The game is a small portion of the action that will take place during the evening. Prior to the first serve, cancer survivors and those battling the disease will be recognized and honored for their courageous fights and a moment of silence will be held in honor of those who have lost their battle prior to the varsity game. Attendees will also have an opportunity to bid on silent auction items, including signed pink volleyballs, and purchase t-shirts, designed by the Chariton team.

Proceeds from the sales and auction will be totaled and split between Lucas County Health Center and Clarke County Hospital and will benefit cancer patients in each facility. A formal check presentation will take place following the end of the varsity game.

“This is a great way for our teams and hospitals to join forces and show support for those affected by the disease,” said Jena Wiley, Marketing Manager. “At the end of the day we all have the same goal – working together to create healthier communities.”

Game times are scheduled for 5:30 PM for JV and 7 PM for Varsity.
