Volleyball Volunteers Time to Continue to Help Fundraise
June 4, 2009
Corvallis, Ore. – The Oregon State volleyball team volunteered its time on Monday to continue to help fundraising efforts for 4-year-old Dylan Cain. The event helped raise over $7,500 to help offset the Cains’ $19,000 in treatment and travel costs.
Dylan and his parents, Mark and Jinger, recently traveled to Duke Children’s Hospital and Clinic in North Carolina, where Dylan received an infusion of stem cells harvested from his banked umbilical cord blood that was saved from birth. For more information on Dylan, visit www.help4dylan.com.
The players took part in the event as servers in the $100 ticket five-course meal at Aqua Seafood Restaurant and Bar. Seventy-one were in attendance. All of the food and wine was donated, and the staff at Aqua also donated its time. The event included a short speech by Oregon State volleyball head coach Taras Liskevych and a video.
The Oregon State volleyball team helped with another fundraising effort for Dylan in April by serving at a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s in Corvallis. Liskevych and the volleyball program donated a number of Oregon State volleyball items signed by the players, adding a USA Volleyball player jersey from when he was the national coach, for a raffle that the Cain’s held in April as well.
