TVCC Lady Cards to Play 4Kay on Feb. 19

Trinity Valley Community College is again teaming up with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer.

For a seventh straight year, TVCC is participating in the WBCA’s Play 4Kay initiative, which began as “Think Pink” in 2007. TVCC has designated the Wednesday, Feb. 19, game against Panola College at Cardinal Gym as its Play 4Kay event. Game time is 5:30 p.m.

The initiative is named in memory of former North Carolina State head women’s basketball coach Kay Yow, who died after a third recurrence of breast cancer in January 2009. The movement continues to grow and change lives, especially during February.

Last year, thanks to the help and support of its fans, TVCC sent $5,000 to the Kay Yow Fund, according to TVCC President Dr. Glendon Forgey. He said the college’s goal this year is $7,500.

All fans wearing an event t-shirt to the game will be admitted free and all cancer survivors will be recognized at halftime.

For fans unable to attend the game, it will be webcast at
