Under the direction of team members of all skill levels and with the help of dedicated family and friends, Montini Catholic’s Bronco Volleyball Team held its annual Volley for a Cure event on Tuesday, September 27, during the game against Providence. (Varsity Broncos won).
Broncos families and friends pledge to continue their tradition of dedicating one game per season to this most worthy cause. The gymnasium (aka “The Stable”) was filled with Bronco fans, including local elementary school students invited to participate with nearly $2,500 raised!
Team members and their mothers prepared for the evening and sold baked goods, t-shirts and other goodies before and during the games in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor Janelle Hail.
The foundation continues to grow each year to help more and more women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and providing free mammograms to women in need.
“Volley for a Cure is and always has been one of my favorite events,” said varsity team head coach Patricia Samolinski. “It’s amazing to be able to come together and use volleyball as a way to raise money for such a great cause. Our parents’ efforts and organization, combined with the support of the school, made for another great year! »
