Alpha Xi Delta Sorority teamed up with SSU's women's basketball team to put on the Pink Zone event on Feb. 11 to raise money for breast cancer awareness. Alpha Xi Delta raised more than $500 that will be donated to the Petaluma Health Center. Pink spirit abounded. And the women Seawolves won against Dominguez Hills.
"The attendance of this game was phenomenal, with it being the largest crowd at a women's basketball game in more than 10 years. The gym was filled with pink and the women Seawolves did awesome. As sports teams and sororities do not usually team up to raise money and awareness for a cause, this was an amazing event that we hope to participate in in the future," says student Leanna Biddle.
