Stateline Speedway 50/50 This Saturday to Benefit Pollino Ovarian Cancer Fund at WCA


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 for this Saturday’s races at Stateline Speedway will benefit the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund at the WCA Foundation to benefit the future of 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 (Monday, July 22, 2013) – 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.

This Saturday, July 27th, Stateline Speedway is allowing the Pollino family to conduct a 50/50 raffle with all proceeds benefitting the Judy Pollino Memorial Cancer Treatment Fund. Gates 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.

For the past three years, the Pollino family has hosted benefit events entitled “Angels Among Us” which have 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.
