MAC volleyball teams serve up $1,600 for Festival of Hope


For several years the Minuteman Activities Conference schools have been holding The Serve for the Cure, a silent auction benefitting Festival of Hope, an organization committed to helping those fighting cancer, and their families, throughout the Panhandle.

Each participating school donates items for the Serve for the Cure silent auction, a conference activity which is held during the conference volleyball tournament, and organized annually by the host school.

“The conference volleyball coaches got together and decided to do this event,” said Leyton High Scholl volleyball coach, Jodi Craig.

On Oct. 15 the MAC schools, including Banner County, Bayard, Creek Valley, Garden County, Leyton, Minatare, Potter-Dix and South Platte, presented $1,606 to the Festival of Hope through Dr. Vincent Bjorling, an oncologist and Chief of Medicine at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.

Bjorling traveled to Bayard to receive the funds for the organization.
