SAN MARCOS – All gate and concession proceeds from Palomar College’s Pacific Coast Athletic Conference women’s volleyball match versus Mt. San Jacinto College on Friday, Oct. 13 will be donated to the Susan G. Koman Foundation for Cancer Research. The annual fundraising event is scheduled for a 5 p.m. start in the Palomar Dome.
“Our women’s volleyball program is asking the campus community to join in this worthy effort,” said Director of Athletics Scott Cathcart. “It is our goal to pack The Dome on Friday for two purposes: first, to make a significant contribution to a worthwhile cause and second, to show strong support for our hard-working intercollegiate volleyball team.”
The mission of the Susan G. Komen Foundation is to save lives and end breast cancer forever. The Foundation’s methods include education, support for research, the extension of grants to provide financial and emotional assistance to those affected by the disease and to advocate for improved public awareness. In a broader sense, the foundation works to ensure quality care for all and invest in science to find a cure. Last year, Susan G. Komen’s community grants provided financial and social support for more than 50,000 families impacted by the devastating effects of breast cancer.
