Bentley volleyball hosted its 2nd Sandy Hoffman Memorial Tournament September 13-14, 2019. Funds donated will go directly to the Vaidya Adrenal Research Fund within Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Sandy Hoffman, the winningest active New England Division II women’s volleyball coach and a 2014 selection for the American Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, served as Bentley's head volleyball coach from 1982-2013. She took a medical leave of absence in August 2014 and lost a long battle with Adrenocortical carcinoma cancer on August 31, 2015.
In 2015, the "Dig Lavender" campaign was honored for raising more than $20,000 for research. Lavender was chosen because it represents cancers without a specific assigned color.
