According to Trace Vaughn, the founding president in 2007 and currently serving as the Lt. governor for Area 2 of the Georgia District of Optimist International, this is the fifth year the organization has hosted the volleyball tournament.
“We had a great year. We had 25 teams register and 24 participated,” said Vaughn.
Each year the Optimist club donates the funds raised to different organizations, and this year The Bridge and The Winner’s Club are splitting the proceeds.
The Bridge is an organization that helps the homeless around Gordon County, and The Winner’s Club helps challenged children in Gordon Couty.
Part of the funds raised also go to support Sarah’s Snacks at the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga. Bob and Susan Williams, who run the program and are the parents of the late Sarah Williams, hand out snacks to the young cancer patients.
