The goal of the event is to help raise awareness for breast cancer as well as raise money for the MaryEllen Locher Foundation of Chattanooga. The foundation grants scholarships to college students with a parent affected by breast cancer. This year’s recipient will be given the scholarship between games on Friday evening.
Over the past five years Volley for the Cure has raised $85,000 for the Mary Ellen Locher Foundation and hopes to raise an additional $22,000 with this year’s event.
This year’s theme is “Pink is the New Black.” T-shirts with logo and the slogan are available for $5 and can be purchased from the volleyball team, at games, at the Paul Conn Student Union, or from The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Cleveland.
The fourth annual luncheon for breast cancer survivors will be held at noon on Thursday, Nov. 1, in the DeVos Recreation Center. This year’s entertainment will feature recording artist, and “American Idol” finalist, Phil Stacey. Stacey will perform musical selections as well as speak at the luncheon.
Volley for the Cure has once again partnered with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Cleveland for the “Flamingo Flocking” fundraiser. By request, the staff at the PSCC can “flock” someone’s yard with up to 75 plastic pink flamingos.
Friday afternoon, prior to the Lady Flames’ match, there will be a silent auction as well as the high school all-star game. Both the silent auction and the all-stars game will begin at 4:30.
The ladies of Lee’s Greek club Zeta Chi Lambda will once again host a Pink Party before and during the Lady Flames’ match. The Pink Party will include fun family activities and will be held in the lobby of the Walker Arena.
