Ive only played it once myself, but I wanted to do something creative, says Brandon Tosti, who heads Sports for a Cause, which organized the tournament. I wanted to be able to invite as many people as possible, of any skill level.
Proceeds from the event which will also include jambalaya and beer will benefit the charitys upcoming volunteer rebuilding trip to New Orleans, which is still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Were hoping to raise $2,000 to $3,000 and hopefully grow this into our signature event, Tosti says.
Dicks is located at 6000 Victory Way in Commerce City (near 60th Avenue and Quebec Street). The tournament will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission for a two-person team is $70, which includes a guaranteed minimum of three games against other opponents, plus food and drink.
