The 17th annual Cathy D’Apice Memorial Volleyball Tournament will be held on Saturday, April 20th, 2013 at Conard H.S. in West Hartford, CT.
The tournament is played in memory of our teammates Cathy D’Apice and
Val Dickinson who lost their battles with cancer.
Cathy D’Apice passed away 20 years ago at the age of 30 and Val Dickinson, her teammate passed away in 2008; she would have turned 53 this year. The tournament includes Cathy and Val’s “Fossils” teammates who play to honor their memory and raise awareness for the cause.

The level of volleyball played each year is outstanding with a mix of collegiate Div. I, II, and III teams participating along with several
women’s adult teams. While the competition is excellent, even more important is the time set aside in the day to pay tribute to Cathy and Val and to honor their memory, celebrate their lives, and to educate all in attendance about the disease and what progress is being made in the fight against breast cancer.
Anyone wishing to volunteer their time to officiate or help out in anyway; if your team is interested in participating or if you are interested in playing even if you don’t have a full team, please contact Fran Vandermeer at: email@example.com
Join us for a memorable day of volleyball for a great cause. Thank you for your support and we hope to see you in April.
