Men in Pink Pool Tourney raised $528 for Jane’s Closet

The 2nd Annual Men in Pink Pool Tournament was held at The Gathering Spot on Sat., Oct. 7. There were twenty players who took part, raising $528 for Jane’s Closet by doing so. The Tourney also had two raffles, one for a 9-Ball Break N Run (which no one won) and another for an autographed pool que, won by Eric Suiter. Winner of the tournament was Keith Webber (at right), who also happens to be the founder of the Men in Pink Pool Tourney. Other members of the group include, l-r: Tommy Lacarbo, Paul Yerdon, Co-owner of The Gathering Spot Jen Herbert, and Mr. Webber (not pictured Rodney Taylor). Going forward, the group plans to hold a Men in Pink Pool Tournament the first Saturday of each October. The sign with pink hand silhouette in the background to “Spread the Hope, Find the Cure!” was made by Kiddie Kampus preschool kids, with the larger silhouettes the mother’s hand and the smaller one on top their son or daughter’s hand.
