Wear pink and help the Royals raise awareness of women's cancers
You can help Queens support Play 4Kay by wearing pink to Queens' homecoming basketball games this Saturday, February 8 starting at 6 p.m. in the Levine Center. Play 4Kay is an organization that raises money and awareness about women's cancers.
Play 4Kay is special to the Royals. The head women's basketball coach Susan Yow is the sister of the Kay Yow, the namesake of the fund and legendary NC State women's basketball coach. Kay passed away in 2009 and to honor her memory, the foundation organizes hundreds of pink games a year to raise money and awareness about women's cancers. Since its initiation in 2007, Play 4Kay has raised more than $2.5 million to help support women's cancer research.
"On behalf of the Kay Yow Foundation, I would like to thank the Queens University of Charlotte Athletics Department, as well as local businesses, for their willingness to get behind the Play 4Kay fundraiser," said Susan Yow. "It's a great time to make a financial donation to win the fight against breast cancer and all other cancer-related diseases."
To donate to Play 4Kay, please visit QueensAthletics.com/Play4Kay and along with several Charlotte businesses, help the Royals meet their fundraising goal.
