Lasell College Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraiser Event “Play 4 the Cure”

By Rebecca Gooch

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In acknowledgment of this month, Lasell College Woman’s Soccer Team will be hosting their second annual event, “Play 4 the Cure.” This event was created in honor of the members of the Lasell woman’s soccer team who have been affected by loved ones battling breast cancer. Specifically in honor of Maria La Francesca, mother of head coach Vito La Francesca, Lasell Lasers will naturally sport pink jerseys.

All proceeds will be donated directly to the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Gillette Center for Breast Cancerin Boston, MA. “Play 4 the Cure” is excited to conduct two main interactive fundraisers that will keep fans involved in the game as well as give them a chance to participate. Before the game starts fans can take the opportunity to attempt to score a penalty shot on one of the team’s goalkeepers after making a donation. Fans or any willing participants will also have the opportunity to sponsor the team. Participants who sponsor the team will pledge a donation amount per goal that the Laser’s score throughout the game.

“Play 4 the Cure” will compete against Greater Northeast Athletic Conference contenders St. Joseph’s College of Maine on October 15th on Taylor Field at 12 p.m.

Lasell College Woman’s Soccer Team currently holds an undefeated season. Students, faculty, alumni and community members are all encouraged to attend, “Play 4 the Cure” and support a good cause as well as our woman’s soccer team!
