01/26/08: DelVal Athletic Fundraiser for The V Foundation for Cancer Research
Jan 18, 2008
On Saturday, January 26, the Delaware Valley College athletic department will hold the 2nd Annual DelVal / Jimmy V Basketball Doubleheader. All proceeds from the admission into the basketball games, the concession stand and additional donations will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
This year's goal is to exceed the funds raised last year, which totalled more than $1,100.
The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded in 1993 by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, legendary North Carolina State basketball coach and ESPN commentator. As of October, 2006, 100% of all direct cash donations and net proceeds of events contributed to the foundation are used to fund cancer research and related programs.
More information on The V Foundation can be found at http://www.jimmyv.org.
DelVal's basketball games next Saturday are against conference opponent Wilkes University, with the women tipping off at 1:00 p.m. and the men following at 3:00 p.m.
Any individual who wishes to assist in any way with the fundraiser may contact athletic director Frank Wolfgang by email at Frank.Wolfgang@delval.edu or by phone at 215-489-2268.
