Teal Shoot Out for the Ovarian Cancer Alliance
UPDATE from the Game:
The Lady Highlanders played hard today - it was a great day of basketball and community! A special thanks to the girls and coaches. All of the coaches and girls embraced the cause, were excited about the event and played to win.
So whether you came to watch the games or were with us in spirt, Thank You! The 2nd event of the Teal Shoot Out was a great success!
Here's the breakdown:
• $656 Split the pot (winner donated back)
• $1000 Raffles
• $100 XU Tickets
• $857 split between the Teal Store & Baked Goods
• Add the nearly $800 from Subway that Oak Hills accounted for (oringially this was reported to us as $451 but there were actually 451 orders. 20% of those orders totaled a little over $800!!)
• Bringing awareness to our community of Mom's, daughters, wives and aunts - PRICELESS.
The Oak Hills Community raised over $3,400 for the Ovarian Cancer Cause!
Oak Hills Girls Basketball Program continues its strong support in fighting Ovarian Cancer in partnership with the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Greater Cincinnati, other local High School teams, and the Xavier University Women's Basketball Team. The Oak Hills Girls Basketball team and coaches started support of this effort in the 2013/14 Season. Building on a successful event last year, the Teal Shootout is now expanding across Cincinnati from this core... Oak Hills is leading!
The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Cincinnati is a non-profit, fully volunteer organization with 3 Oak Hills graduates on the Board of Trustees: Debbie Walter - Co-Chair and 1 year Ovarian Cancer Survivor (OHHS '88), Andy Walter ('87) and Bill Deters ('86). Debbie was diagnosed in November of 2013 and after surgeries and 18 Chemo sessions has made it part of her life mission to create awareness, help survivors and caregivers, and support efforts to end the devastating effect of Ovarian Cancer! She's playing to win!
• Ovarian Cancer is known as the silent killer. Women are not aware of the symptoms as they are subtle and masked, looking like other health issues. By the time ovarian cancer is actually diagnosed, it is often stage 3 or 4. There is a desperate need to raise awareness of the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and find a method for early detection!
• Over 22,000 US women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year with over 14,000 deaths each year. The 5-year survival rate of 36% has not improved in the last 40 years. Funding for Ovarian Cancer research needs to be dramatically increased to improve treatments and to find a cure.
All of the money we raise and the support we receive go towards our mission. We have no staff and rely 100% on volunteers. We've partnered with the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky to create even more scale to win against cancer (all cancers).
