CARROLLTON, Georgia – The West Georgia Tech women’s basketball team donned pink for the cause of breast cancer awareness as they hosted the second-annual WGTC “Hoops for Hope” Breast Cancer Awareness women’s basketball jamboree on October 19.
A special program was held between two of the games with Holley serving as guest speaker sharing her story of surviving the disease that took her mother’s life at the age of 68.
Tanner Medical Foundation’s Mammogram Assistance Fund funds mammograms for area women who could not otherwise afford the life-saving screening.
"We are very grateful to the student-athletes and the staff of the West Georgia Technical College Foundation for this very generous gift,” Mathis said. “In the last year, community support funded mammograms for 326 women in our community. This simply could not be possible without the generosity of partners like West Georgia Tech Foundation and the WGTC women’s basketball program.”
Southern Crescent and West Georgia Tech played a second game to wrap up the event. West Georgia Tech won both contests over SCTC.
