Mallory Yozwiak and Gabby Vaxmonsky have organized a charity field hockey event against rival Wyoming Area to benefit the ’I Am Beautiful’ charity.
Pittston Area National Honor Society seniors Mallory Yozwiak and Gabrielle Vaxmonsky will sponsor the second annual "I Am Beautiful" Charity field hockey game on Sunday, October 2 at 2 p.m. at the Bucky Harris Athletic Complex in Hughestown. Proceeds of the game will benefit eating disorder awareness in local communities and schools.
After last year’s inaugural game, the girls raised over $2,000 for eating disorder awareness. The money was donated to the Hershey Medical Center Eating Disorder Program, the National Eating Disorder Awareness Organization and the Ronald McDonald House.
The money was also used to bring a speaker to Pittston Area Middle School from Hershey Medical Center to speak about eating disorders to eighth graders last year.
The event will feature an exhibition game between the Pittston Area and Wyoming Area girls’ field hockey teams. There will also be an exhibition game between the Pittston Area senior boys and junior boys following the girls’ game.
A Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle will also be conducted. Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for students.
Monetary donations can be sent to Pittston Area High School, 5 Stout Street, Pittston, Pa. 18640. Make checks payable to PANHS, memo - I Am Beautiful .
