Sand volleyball event benefits cancer center at UofL, Oct. 19
Benefactors of a fund to support patients at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville are sponsoring a sand volleyball event to raise money for the fund.
Earlier this year, Alex and Tommy Gift established the Mary Jane Gift Quality of Life Fund at the cancer center in honor of their late mother to help patients enjoy life while facing a cancer diagnosis. To benefit the fund, the Gifts are sponsoring “Spike It to Cancer,” a sand volleyball event at Baxter Jack’s sand volleyball complex, 427 Baxter Ave, from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Admission is $20 per person and includes appetizers, snacks and soft drinks. Payment by cash, check or credit card will be
accepted at the door.
“All proceeds from this event go to the Mary Jane Gift Quality of Life Fund that pays for extras provided to patients and caregivers, such as theater tickets or a night out on the town,” Michael Neumann, executive director of development, said. “We invite everyone to get a team together, sponsor a team or come watch the fun while they support a worthy cause.”
For additional details, contact Neumann at 502-562-4642.
