Bobcats Raise Money for Breast Cancer Research

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The totals are in, and the Georgia College Athletic Department couldn’t be happier. Surrounding the Sept. 22 Bobcat soccer game, GC Athletics worked with Georgia College’s sports marketing class to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

All told, money generated from t-shirt and lemonade sales as well as donations totaled over $650.  

“It’s always a rewarding experience to work with the student body at Georgia College,” said sports information director Al Weston. “With much help from Dr. Joe Schwartz’s sports marketing class and the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, this project really took form. We raised a great amount of money for the cause, and had a lot of fun in the process.”

Georgia College athletics has already scheduled another breast cancer awareness evening. Dubbed “Pack the House in Pink”, the annual breast cancer awareness basketball contest is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 4 at 1:30 p.m. as the Bobcats take on Lander University.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
