Volleyball game raises money for American Heart Assoc.

WEST PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - A volleyball game was held between Seton and Mercy on Thursday night to raise money for the live-saving work of the American Heart Association.

This is the second ear Seton High School has held this event to raise awareness that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the nation. In Greater Cincinnati, an average of 1,777 people die each year from the disease.

Seton High and Seton Varsity Volleyball hopes to be part of the solution by selling Red-Out t-shirts for $10 each. The proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association.

Last year, the special game raised more than $1,500 for the American Heart Association.
