Toledo, OH, July 8, 2014- The 2014 Pollyball Tournament will be held August 23, 2014 from 9am-5 pm at International Park in Toledo. Sponsored by the Hylant Family Foundation, proceeds from this fun fueled event support the YWCA Encore Plus program helping under and uninsured women obtain breast cancer screening and treatment, education and support.

After Polly Hylant-Tracy lost her battle to breast cancer in 1990, her family decided to commemorate her life by celebrating both her love of the outdoors and the many happy backyard family volleyball games played at her house. Pollyball was born, and the Hylant family has been partnering with the YWCA Northwest Ohio since 2007 to see that funds raised from the tournament work to save lives of women in the Toledo area.

Pollyball supports the YWCA’s Encore Plus program, a comprehensive breast health education, support and resource center that served over 5,000 women in northwest Ohio in 2013. Encore Plus provides no-cost intensive case management and support services through the ordeal of breast cancer, as well as access to low or no cost mammograms and early detection and screening education programs at community agencies, clinics, and shelters.

Entry fees and sponsorship levels vary and include lunch and t-shirt! For more information on registering your team, sponsoring the event or volunteering, please visit our website:
