CHARLESTON, S.C. – On the field, the baseball teams of CSU and the College of Charleston will be competitors on Tuesday, April 1st. Off the field, the Buccaneers’ head coach Jason Murray knows there are bigger things than winning or losing. That sentiment is why proceeds from ticket sales and concessions will go toward the MLP Foundation, which has been set up for Charleston head coach John Pawlowski’s daughter, Mary Louise, who is battling cancer.
“We would like to invite the community of Charleston and all the Buc and Cougar fans to watch the game this coming Tuesday, April 1st,” Murray said. “With your support, we can aid coach Pawlowski and his daughter, Mary Louise, while contributing to the search for a cure. See you at the ball park for an exciting game as we support others in the game of life!”
Mary Louise,13, was recently diagnosed with PNET (primitive neuroectodermal tumors), a rare malignancy seen in only two percent of children with cancer. The MLP Foundation (named after Mary Louise Pawlowski) was set up by her parents to support cancer research and help defray medical related expenses. Along with ticket sales and concessions, donations will also be collected throughout the game.
