ACES FOR GRACE
Aces for GRACE partners with local high school volleyball teams each fall to raise funds for two $2,000 scholarships available to two area high school seniors who have been directly impacted by a cancer diagnosis - either themselves or with an immediate family member. High school seniors must live within the GRACE service area of 40 miles around Grand Island and fill out an application and write an essay on how that cancer diagnosis has impacted them personally. The scholarship is broken down into $1,000 a year for two years for two high school seniors and is paid after verification of enrollment.
For every ace serve the girls get during the home games, a local business donates $25. Contact the GRACE Office for details!
