The 4th Annual Strike Out Cancer Day was a winner on March 31 as more than 250 spectators came out to cheer on the VWC softball team while raising money for the American Cancer Society. Members of the softball team sold tickets to the event at $5 each. The day included food, fun and festivities as well as a large silent auction, which also helped raise money for the cause. The event raised $9,000, adding to the more than $25,000 raised over the last three years. "On behalf of the Virginia Wesleyan softball team, the American Cancer Society and my family, I want to thank our campus community for coming together for another great Strike Out Cancer Day," said Head Softball Coach Brandon Elliott.
