Patriots Ovarian Cancer Awareness Night a Success

An e-mail from Lynn Franklin and Lynn Stahl sums up the wonderful night we had.

"What a resounding success the ovarian cancer awareness baseball game was on Saturday evening!! From the selling of tickets,to the fantastic fireworks, to the beautiful, clear weather, to the comraderie and hard work of our volunteers, to meeting new people at the stadium, to making new friends of the stadium staff, to the laughs and hugs we shared, all melded together for a wonderful event.
Thank you to all of you who helped in any way to make last evening a success for Northern NJ NOCC in implementing our mission to educate people about ovarian cancer."

All the Patriots players and stadium staff wore teal bracelets and fans received a bag containing a teal bracelet , a symptom card and brochure about ovarian cancer. During the pre-game show Carl , spoke about Ovarian Cancer and thanked the Patriots for their support. Ellen and Jean threw out the first ball of the night and a group of 20 or so NOCC volunteers/ supporters sang "Take Me Out to the Ball Game " during the 7th inning stretch.

The Patriots won the game beating the York Revolution in extra innings in front of a sold out stadium.

Every Day is a Blessing!
