Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced today that it has created a community partnership with Diva for a Day for its upcoming season finale at Yurcak Field this Sunday, Sept. 25th. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to the match will be given back to Diva for a Day, a non-profit organization that provides spa days for women dealing with cancer as a means to escape the daily stresses they endure.
“We are very pleased to be working with Diva for a Day,” said Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President & General Manager. “The initiative behind their organization is such a worthwhile cause, and we are excited to team up with them for our 2016 season finale. We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, and we encourage our fans to take a look at Diva for a Day to see how they can further support this incredible program.”
Founded in 2010, Diva for a Day was established by Peggy Matzen and Debbie Sestokas, who are both cancer survivors themselves. The idea for the organization was inspired by their volunteer work together, where they continued to be closely affected by the women they met who were dealing with the struggles of cancer.
"The Diva for a Day Foundation provides a much needed day to escape from the daily stresses that a cancer diagnosis brings,” Matzen and Sestokas said in a joint statement. “It's a day for the women to rest, relax, restore and feel beautiful. Each woman who is selected is treated to a full day of pampering from head to toe. The program brings light into the hearts of those who are chosen and joy to everyone that gives.”
