In 2016, We Raised $9,187 for Breast Cancer Awareness!

Sep 28, 2016 | Notifications

Since 2008, we have raised a grand total of $63,688! This is possible only with the support of many people and teams over many seasons. I am honored to support this cause, as it is heading into its tenth year.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month wouldn’t be complete without a look back at our fundraising efforts this season. During 2016, the City of Salem hosted three youth softball tournaments an adult mush ball tournament and adult home run contest to raise money for the Linda L. Vladyka Breast Wellness Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to raising funds for education, research, and the promotion of breast wellness and breast cancer issues.

How did we do? This year, benefits from Play for a Cure Oregon© fundraising tournaments totaled $9,187—some of the top sources of donations for the foundation! Thank you to all of the teams and families who participated!

  • $9,187 Raised in 2016
  • $10,000 Goal in 2017

Please Help Us Reach Our 2017 Goal

With your help, we hope to raise at least $10,000 in 2017. You can support this worthy cause by registering for and playing in one of our next fundraising tournaments. You can find 2017 tournament registration information online now. In addition, we hope each participating team can dig deep inside their pockets and donate at least $100. That’s less than $10 per player. Don’t forget, we will be giving away prizes for the team with the greatest donation during each tournament!
