NORFOLK Va. - On Wednesday, Sept. 29 the Hampton Roads college basketball community is coming together for a special event: The Coaches vs. Cancer Tip-Off Breakfast, and ODU basketball coaches Wendy Larry and Blaine Taylor, along with honorary chairs Paul Webb and Coach Lefty Driesell would like Monarch fans to come out and support the worthy cause.
Fans will have the chance to mingle with coaches, players and other fans. There will be food, drinks, entertainment and a special silent live auction of basketball items. But, most importantly, all in attendance will be supporting the lifesaving programs and services of the American Cancer Society.
The event will run from 8-10 a.m. at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. General Admission is $35. Visit http://www.coachesvscancerhamptonroads.org or contact Jennifer Stout at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-493-7968.
Schools participating in the event include: Christopher Newport University, Hampton University, Norfolk State University, Old Dominion University, Virginia Wesleyan College and The College of William & Mary.
All proceeds from the event benefit the American Cancer Society.
For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what they've learned through research and turning it into what they do, they have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that they've helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. Now that's a reason to party, so join us!
