NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts women's basketball team will hold their annual "Play for Kay" night Tuesday, Feb. 5 when the Trailblazers host Westfield State at 5:30 p.m. The "Play for Kay" game has been a staple of the MCLA schedule for the past few seasons and the money raised at the game will go directly to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
The Kay Yow Cancer Fund, in partnership with the Women's Basketball Coaches Association and The V Foundation, is a charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.
Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, and passed away on January 24, 2009, after facing her third bout with the disease.
Campuses across the nation participate in the event at all levels of college basketball. For more information, visit www.play4jay.org
