Festivities for the event, which is a breast cancer awareness fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, begin at 5 p.m. when the junior varsity girls volleyball match between Prospect and Buffalo Grove starts.

The varsity match will follow, with the fine voice of Bison junior varsity volleyball player Lizzy Petitt, a sophomore, singing the national anthem.

Since Knights coach Mike Riedy began the event in 2008, he and his program has raised about $28,000 over the past four years.

"It's a multi-headed monster that completely spun out of control," Riedy said. "But I think it's a good thing because it's raising money for a great cause. No complaints from my end."

Players and officials will be wearing pink. The Prospect drum line, cheerleaders and pom-poms will perform.

There will be raffles for prizes and T-shirts will be sold.

"The most important thing is raising money for a great cause," Riedy said.

First-year Buffalo Grove coach Matt Priban is looking forward to participating.

"It will be a real nice event," Priban said. "Mike and I have worked on a lot of things and it will be nice to raise money for the cure."
