Congressional Women’s Softball Game Raises Record Amount for Young Women Breast Cancer Survivors

8th Annual Game between Members of Congress and the Media  on Wednesday in D.C.

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Women’s Softball Game announced today that they have raised more than $200,000 in corporate sponsorship, individual donations, and ticket sales to benefit the Young Survival Coalition–  a new record, with sales still continuing through the game on Wednesday. Now in its 8th year, the CWSG has raised  more than $875,000 to date for YSC, a global organization dedicated to critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

“Every year when we begin planning the Game, there’s a new level of excitement from all our fans, players, and volunteers,” said Kate Yglesias Houghton, President and founding member of the Congressional Women’s Softball Game.  “It isn’t just about practices or making signs– everyone playing and attending our Game knows that we are all about making a difference.  The funds we raise directly help women under 40 who are diagnosed with breast cancer– a disease no woman should have to face alone.  Young Survival Coalition brings together women from across the country to lean on each other and tackle cancer as a team.  That’s exactly what the Congressional Women’s Softball Game is all about.”

The game will once again be emceed by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, CNN’s Dana Bash, and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).  Record attendance is expected.
