DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women's volleyball team played host to another successful "Volley 4 Holly" event on Tuesday, May 10. The seventh annual "Volley 4 Holly" tournament raised more than $1,300 for the Holly Young Fund, while a record 26 teams competed including representatives from all varsity programs and intra-department teams participated.
The event was created to raise money for Wildcat volleyball player Holly Young, who passed away on Jan. 24, 2008 after a courageous three-year battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. The funds raised at the event will go to a scholarship setup in Young's name at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, the Jimmy Fund and cancer research.
Teams made a minimum donation of $50, while several sponsors helped made the event even more successful.
For those who would still like to make a contribution to the tournament or the Holly Young Fund, please contact Associate Head Coach Stacy Barnett at 603-862-4664.
