Local Volleyball Tournament Raises Funds

LAS VEGAS - PSI World graduates in Las Vegas are hosting a beach volleyball tournament to benefit the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps families who have had a child diagnosed with a life threatening or critical illness such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell anemia, and other immunological diseases. This is the eleventh year that PSI World graduates have held the tournament to raise awareness for local charities.

The tournament will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Sunset Park, located at Sunset Boulevard and Eastern Avenue. More than 20 co-ed teams of six will participate in the event.

The public is invited to watch the tournament and participate in a number of raffles to win prizes, including an all-expense paid trip for two to Hawaii. Refreshments and a variety of food will be served throughout the day.

In addition to providing social, emotional, educational and psychological support, the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation hosts a summer day camp developed for children with catastrophic illnesses. Camp Cartwheel allows these children and their siblings to enjoy being kids together for a few days. Experiences include swimming, hiking, arts, horseback riding, and nature study.

Donations for the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation will be accepted at the tournament. A special account for the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (Acct # 03020004804) has also been opened at Nevada First Bank. To make a direct donation, contact Nevada First Bank at 702-735-8434.
