Fan cutouts at Women's Final Four to benefit Pat Summitt, Kay Yow funds

Fans looking to get into the cardboard cutout game at the Women's Final Four will also benefit charities connected to icons of the game. 

Like venues across the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, San Antonio's Alamodome will feature cutouts of fans in the stands at the Women's Final Four. Fans who purchase cutouts will have a chance to see cardboard versions of themselves on TV while benefiting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, Pat Summitt Foundation and the San Antonio Food Bank.

The NCAA announced on Monday that all proceeds from the $100 purchase price of a cutout will benefit the three charities. College students catch a price break of $50.

Where the money goes

They Kay Yow Cancer Fund awards research grants and funds programs to combat cancers that affect women. It's named after the former N.C. State head coach who died in 2009 after battling breast cancer. 

The Pat Summit Foundation is named after the former Tennessee head coach who died in 2016 after a battle with Alzheimer's disease. The fund seeks a cure for the disease while providing support for patients and caregivers. 

The San Antonio Food Bank serves hundreds of thousands of at-risk individuals around San Antonio, according to the NCAA. 

Cardboard cutouts won't be alone in the Alamodome Stands. The Women's Final Four is resisting Texas' opening of businesses to 100 percent capacity as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, but is allowing fans to attend at 17 percent capacity.
