On Saturday, April 9, 2016, the Mississippi Gulf Coast APA held a charity tournament to benefit the Hancock County Animal Shelter. A total of 12 people participated in the tournament, along with several others who came out to show their support. They raised $138 for the shelter!
“It’s great to see such support from the poolplayers,” said Susan Church, MS Gulf Coast APA League Operator.
Donald and Sonja Ladner, Host Location owners of Rack & Roll, hosted the tournament. Mr. Shane from the shelter came to join them at the end of the tournament. The 1st Place winner was Joe Stewart and 2nd Place went to Bobby Blake.
Split the pot drawings and raffles were held.
“Our pets are some of our greatest treasures and best friends. Our League has supported three animal service/shelter organizations thus far and we have future plans to add additional opportunities,” said Church.
MS Gulf Coast APA has held nine charity tournaments since August 2015 raising $4,978!
