Homeowners at Traditions of America at Liberty Hill, State College’s leading active adult community (http://www.TOALibertyHill.com ), hosted Penn State Lady Lions Coach Coquese Washington at a fundraiser for the Pennsylvania Pink Zone. The Pink Zone and Lady Lions Basketball are a unified force in the fight against breast cancer, and homeowners were happy to join the “home team” in raising money and awareness. The event, held at the Liberty Hill Clubhouse, resulted in a $1,200 donation to the Pink Zone.
“I’m a 22 year breast cancer survivor, so I know there’s life after the diagnosis and hope that survivors can still lead an active life. The Pink Zone basketball game is a healing moment to connect with other survivors—it’s like a sisterhood of women who are moving on with their lives,” said Traditions of America homeowner Karen Hirsch. “It was an honor to host Coach Washington and her players at Liberty Hill to raise awareness and funds for her Pink Zone game and the fight against breast cancer.”
Traditions of America at Liberty Hill residents were encouraged to make a donation upon attending the event, which included a pot luck dinner and pink ribbon cupcake desserts supplied by the community Lifestyle Director. Many came decked out in pink to show their support for the cause. Two tickets to the annual Pink Zone game on March 1st were given away.
“A number of Traditions of America at Liberty Hill community members are breast cancer survivors, so this cause is important to them,” said Lifestyle Director Tracy Lopez. “We also have a strong group of raving Penn State fans, so meeting Coach Washington was a real thrill!”
Washington, the Penn State women’s basketball coach since 2007, told the 75 homeowners gathered “The Lady Lions are grateful for your support of our team, for the whole season and your generous support of the Pink Zone game.”
