We Raised $6,800 for Breast Cancer Awareness!
Breast Cancer Awareness Month wouldn’t be complete without a look back at our fundraising efforts this season. During 2015, the City of Salem hosted three softball tournaments to raise money for the Linda L. Vladyka Breast Wellness Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to raising funds for education, research, and the promotion of breast wellness and breast cancer issues.
How did we do? This year, benefits from Play for a Cure Oregon© fundraising tournaments totaled $6,800—some of the top sources of donations for the foundation! Thank you to all of the teams and families who participated!
Please Help Us Reach Our 2016 Goal
With your help, we hope to raise at least $10,000 in 2016. You can support this worthy cause by registering for and playing in one of our next fundraising tournaments. You can find 2016 tournament registration information online now. In addition, we hope each participating team can dig deep inside their pockets and donate at least $100. That’s less than $10 per player. Don’t forget, we will be giving away prizes for the team with the greatest donation during each tournament!

Teams that participated in the 2014 tournament and contributed to the fundraising efforts will receive an invitation for early registration for this year’s tournament beginning April 1, 2015. Thank you to all of those teams for your participation and the effort you put into fundraising.
General registration for any openings still available will begin on May 1. The registration form will be posted on this website at midnight on May 1, 2015. A total of 20 women’s teams and 20 co-ed teams will be accepted; then a waiting list will be started.
Our goal is to provide participating teams of all skill levels with good, fun and fair competition but please remember, Play for a Cure Oregon© is primarily a fundraising tournament for local and regional breast cancer services. If your team is considering participating in this event, please be sure you’re competing against breast cancer this weekend and not just competing for a trophy.
