Dansville High School's Future Business Leaders of America kids organized the fundraiser to benefit the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center, a partnership of UR Medicine's Wilmot Cancer Institute and Noyes Health in Dansville, in honor of the mother of one of their fellow students,who passed away from cancer just 3 weeks ago.
Lisa Rosica was a counselor at Hornell High School; her son Nick is a senior and 3-season athlete at Dansville High School.
Administration, staff and students from both high schools collaborated to make the event a success, raising $15,100 for the Cancer Center.
UR Medicine | Noyes Health's CEO Amy Pollard and Noyes Health Foundation chair Jon Shay were at the game to accept the check. "It was an extraordinary night," says Pollard, "and a wonderful tribute to Lisa. We are so grateful to all the kids and staff and all the members of the Dansville and Hornell communities who gave so much in her honor."
