Cancer Center Unveils Special Car to be Raffled

Money Benefits WVU Betty Puskar Breast Care Center

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia University’s Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center will unveil a special edition Mercedes Benz, at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 27, at University Motors in Morgantown. “Betty’s Benz” was designed for the 2005 Betty Puskar FUTURES Golf Classic, which benefits WVU’s Betty Puskar Breast Care Center. 

One thousand five hundred tickets will be sold at $100 apiece as part of a raffle to win the vehicle. Tickets will go on sale that evening and be sold at University Motors showroom throughout the summer. Tickets can also be purchased by calling the Cancer Center at 293-3711. The holder of the winning ticket will be announced August 14, the final day of the weekend tournament at the Pines Country Club in Morgantown.

“I think this is something really unique to our tournament,” said David Stone, tournament director. “I believe it will generate excitement as well as revenue for the breast care center.”

Various events and activities are scheduled the entire week of the Morgantown FUTURES beginning Aug. 8 with a fashion show at the Radisson Hotel at Waterfront Place.  All proceeds will go to the breast care center.

The BPFGC is the only professional ladies golf tournament in West Virginia.  Several past champions of the Morgantown tournament, including Jimin Kang, Reilley Rankin, Lorena Ochoa, Grace Park and Becky Iverson, are active on the LPGA Tour.

Refreshments will be served at Wednesday’s unveiling. The public is invited to attend.
