50/50 to Support Pollino Cancer Fund at WCA Rescheduled for August 10th at Stateline Speedway


WCA Hospital
Members of the Judy Pollino Family join Peter Stark, Board Member for the WCA Foundation, to announce that the proceeds from the 50/50 during races at Stateline Speedway on Saturday, August 10th will benefit the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund at the WCA Foundation to benefit ovarian cancer care at WCA Hospital. This race car, driven by Jason Covey at Stateline Speedway, features the “Angels Among Us” and WCA Foundation logos.

Jamestown, New York (Thursday, August 1, 2013) – Because of rain this past Saturday, Stateline Speedway has rescheduled the 50/50 raffle to benefit the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund for next Saturday, August 10th. Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. and racing begins at 7:00 p.m. The winner of the 50/50 will be drawn at 9:00 p.m.

In 2010, the Pollino family created the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund at the WCA Foundation in tribute to their deceased mother to help local patients who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

For the past three years, the Pollino family has hosted benefit events entitled “Angels Among Us” which has raised more than $4,000 to support this endowed cancer care fund and will aid WCA Hospital in the fight against ovarian cancer.

If you would like to contribute to this endowment fund, please contact Brigetta Overcash, WCA Foundation Executive Director, at (716) 664-5461. Tax-deductible donations and memorial gifts can be mailed to W.C.A. Foundation, P.O. Box 840, Jamestown, NY 14702-0840.

Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. But when ovarian cancer is found in its early stages, treatment is most effective. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2013, about 22,240 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed and 14,030 women will die of ovarian cancer in the United States.
