The WVU Cancer Institute coordinates a handful of signature events each year through strategic partnership. Individuals and corporations can support the WVU Cancer Institute during these events through sponsorships, purchasing tickets, and/or by bidding on auction items.
Annual signature events include:
- The Bob Huggins Fish Fry supports the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Endowment, established by Coach Huggins in his mother’s name to provide cancer care and research in West Virginia. The casual event features live performances and an all-star guest lineup with can’t-miss commentary from Coach Huggins and friends.
- The WVU Women’s Soccer 4v4 Breast Cancer Tournament is held each year during the university’s spring semester to benefit the Betty Puskar Breast Cancer Center and increase awareness about the importance of annual mammograms. The tournament takes place in Morgantown and features three-person teams from the community who are then paired with a Mountaineer player.
- The WVU Cancer Gala is held over a weekend each spring at The Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia. The formal event includes dining, dancing, silent and live auctions, as well as other top-tier experiences.
- The Pink Party benefits Bonnie’s Bus, a mobile mammography unit that travels West Virginia, offering breast cancer screening in a comfortable, convenient environment. The event is a lively and engaging cocktail-style party, traditionally held in Morgantown, West Virginia.
