Serve for the Cure - October 1-2
The Blessed Trinity volleyball team is hosting the 3rd annual Blessed Trinity Serve for the Cure Invitational Volleyball Tournament. This year’s event will take place on October 1 and 2. All proceeds from the tournament go to fund breast cancer research through the American Cancer Society.
According to Blessed Trinity varsity volleyball coach, Paul Stevens, the Lady Titans have worked hard to ensure this tournament is an even greater success than last years. “We’ve raised over $5,000 in the first two years of this tournament, and we certainly hope to add a sizeable amount to that total.”
While admission to the tournament will be free of charge, fans will be asked to make a donation to breast cancer research. This year’s tournament will again feature a bake sale, handmade pillows, pink ribbons, and the popular 50/50 raffle, where the 2009 winner took home almost $600. In addition, the players will be selling hand-decorated picture frames with photos of each team in the tournament as well as t-shirts designed by the varsity players. Players from the JV and freshman teams will donate their time all weekend by helping to run all the tables and booths at the tournament.
“I’d really like to encourage all BT students and parents to come out to Serve for the Cure,” said Stevens. “The competition is outstanding - 8 of the 12 teams at the tournament are ranked in the top 10 in their classification - so everyone will get to see some great volleyball and support a worthy cause.”
