Today

* Dig for Life Pink-Out Night, 7 p.m. Houck Field House. Southeast Missouri State University volleyball athletes "dig" for breast cancer prevention, detection and education. Team members secure pledges per dig, a volleyball term, which are then tallied throughout all of October's home matches. All ticket proceeds to the game will benefit Dig for Life, and breast cancer survivors will receive a free T-shirt.

* Breast Care & Diagnostic Center Open House: From noon to 6 p.m. The Center will open its doors to visitors in October in an effort to better educate women about the detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Thursday

* Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Night: 5 to 9 p.m., Just Teasin' Hair and Nail Salon. Proceeds from $10 haircuts go to breast cancer research.
