Varsity Volleyball Earns “Philanthropic Achievement Award”

St. Andrew’s Varsity Volleyball players raised over $6,000 for breast cancer awareness this year, earning them the SideOut Foundation’s “Philanthropic Achievement Award” for 2017. Last year the girls raised $1,600 for the foundation. Hasie Sherman ‘19 credits more planning time to their increased fundraising, plus more team member participation. She explains:

“Not only was the extra time crucial, but this year we got our entire team involved. Everyone on the team wanted success not only in our fundraiser but also in bringing awareness to a cause that is so dear to so many of us. Clara Sherman ‘19 and I along with Kyla Thompson ‘20 and Natalie Youngblood ‘19 all had moms with breast cancer. We all four came together and decided to try and make a difference in raising money to find a cure for a disease that played a major role in shaping our lives as kids. This passion for the cause produced the success we hoped for.”
