During Western Nebraska APA’s Annual 9-Ball Fun & Cash Singles Tournament, $1,500 in prize money was up for grabs.  The event was held on Feb. 12 at three different locations in Sidney, Neb.— Silver Dollar, Harvey’s and Stewies.  Forty-eight shooters competed, with the top 16 earning cash prizes.  Western Nebraska APA donated the $1,500 in prize money, which meant that every dollar of the entry fee went to cancer research.

Raffle tickets were also sold, and donations were accepted.  The event raised $539 for the American Cancer Society.  Prizes for the raffles included t-shirts, and all tickets purchased were entered into a grand prize drawing for a leather jacket.  The grand prize drawing will take place at the end of the session.  The t-shirts and jacket were also donated by Western Nebraska APA.

First place in the tournament went to Barry Shepard of Kimball, Neb., who won $350.  He defeated Anne Sterling of Sidney, Neb., in the finals.  Sterling collected $250 for finishing in 2nd Place.  Both Shepard and Sterling donated $50 of their winnings back to the cause.

Kaylee Henzie of Lodgepole, Neb., donated $15 of the $50 prize money she earned for her 9th Place tie.  Royce and Beth Ann Penner of Ogallala, Neb., didn’t make it into the money round, but still made a very generous $100 donation.
