COLUMBIA, S.C. - University of South Carolina head men's basketball coach Frank Martin and his wife Anya hosted the Second Annual "Coaches vs. Cancer" benefit, the "B-Ball of the South," in early May at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia. The event was once again outstanding, from the live auction to the many charitable donations, the Ball raised $129,470, which will benefit "Coaches vs. Cancer," a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

"Once again, in early May, we had our Second Annual B-Ball of the South," Coach Martin said. "The event was sold out, and it was a great night of fun and entertainment, and raising a lot of awareness and dollars to continue to fight this deadly disease called cancer. I'm extremely proud of my wife and all of her committee members in the job they did in putting on such a first-class event in our hometown of Columbia."

The over 250 in attendance enjoyed a Kentucky Derby style themed ball, which featured a live auction of items, including a signed guitar from Darius Rucker, a dinner with the Gamecock coaching staff and several other fantastic items. The event featured heavy hors d'oeuvres, including a wonderful array of Southern cuisine items and a dessert table.

The Martins are longtime supporters of "Coaches vs. Cancer," attending events across the country each year. Continue to visit for further details on the 2015 B-Ball of the South. Also, click HERE visit the B-Ball of the South page on Facebook.
