Lady Golden Eagles Support Breast Cancer Voucher Program

The Tyrone Area School District’s Lady Golden Eagles Basketball Program made a donation of $2,875.84 to the Tyrone Regional Health Network Foundation with funds to be directed to Tyrone Hospital’s Breast Cancer & Women’s Health Institute’s (BCWHI) Breast Cancer Voucher Program.

The Breast Cancer Voucher Program provides support to patients of BCWHI with breast cancer who are uninsured or underinsured to help ease financial pressures.

The Lady Golden Eagles raised the funds donated via their annual Tyrone Lady Eagles vs Bellwood Lady Blue Devils game which was designated a PINK game to support the Breast Cancer Voucher Program.  The theme for the PINK game was “Go Pink or Go Home”.  Fund raising activities at the game included a t-shirt sale, a basket raffle with baskets donated by Varsity, Junior Varsity and Junior High girls’ basketball teams and a 50/50 drawing and a donation collection during half-time.
