Pool Tournament to Help Cancer Victim

Hi All,
There is a child in my son Jacob's school, who was just diagnosed with Billiards8 cancer 2 weeks ago. She started vomited blood at school, was rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed. A tumor had surrounded her kidney, and it will never work properly again. She is a first grader, and her family needs support during this difficult time.

I would like to have a pool tournament at the ICAC on July 10th at 7:00 (6:30 sign up) to raise funds for her and her family. Entry fee will be $10 per person and 50/50's will be sold. Cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place. It will be partners - everyone will be randomly matched up with their partner. Double elimination in the winners bracket - then single elimination in the losers bracket.

There is also a walk-a-thon and Chinese Auction at Washington Lake Park on Greentree Road in Washington Twp. on July 11th. Feel free to visit the website:

If anyone is interested, please let me know. I am looking for shooters, volunteers to help run the tournament, donations for a basket of cheer, and of course monetary donations are always welcome. I know times are tough and money is tight, but when cancer affects anyone - especially such a young child - we have to try to do what we can to help out. If everyone can ask their team sponsor for a bottle for the basket of cheer, that would be great!

Please let me know if you, or you know anyone, who may be interested in helping in any way. PLEASE forward this email on to as many people as you can. Your support is GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much!!!
Jennifer Smith
