NORFOLK, VA-- The Old Dominion University Lady Monarchs will be playing for more than a victory on the court on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 2 p.m., when they take on national power North Carolina at the Constant Center -- they will also be playing for a cure.
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Tidewater Affiliate and area hospitals have joined forces with Old Dominion and designated the Dec. 7 contest as "Hoops for a Cure". A pre-game Women's Health Expo will kick-off the day's events at noon on the Constant Center plaza, featuring live music by Broad Street, the mobile mammography unit and information booths on women's health issues. Halftime activities will include a performance by Jazzercise and recognition of local survivors.
Tickets for the game are $13. For every ticket sold by the hospitals and the Komen Foundaton, $6 will benefit the Komen Tidewater Affiliate and fund local breast health services as well as breast cancer research. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Komen office at 490-7794 or from the following hospitals: Obici (Suffolk), Riverside Regional Medical Center (Newport News), the Sentara Cancer Institue-Peninsula, Sentara Norfolk General Cancer Institue, Sentara Virginia Beach Cancer Institute, and Chesapeake Health.
