HAWKS PLAY 4KAY
Since Head Coach Jenny Palmateer took over the reigns of the Monmouth women’s basketball team, Play 4Kay Day has traditionally taken on greater meaning. Palmateer both played and coached a combined 14 years under Kay Yow, the longtime North Carolina State Head Coach for whom the cause is named. Play 4Kay is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.
