Dig for a Cure
More than 430 people were on hand Oct. 1 in Elma for the fourth annual Elma/Monte Dig for a Cure match between the two high school volleyball teams.
This year the clubs decided to support two local boys who are fighting cancer — Doug George from Elma and Ripley “Rip” Schumacher from Montesano.
Montesano won the match, 25-10, 25-23, 25-7.
With all the donations and complete generosity from the crowd, the teams were able to raise $1,600 to help offset treatment costs for these two local families.
The teams would like to thank a number of people and sponsors who donated money and time to this local event: Maggi Truttman, Francine Carpenter, Elma Variety Store, Vaughn Chopper Pumps, The Elma Eagles No. 1440, Elma HS print shop (Kari Toms), Bayview Redi Mix, Coffee Coop, Les Schwab, Little Hill Farm, Maja Ballew, D4 Sports, Gordon’s Select Market, Byron Miller, Athlete’s Corner, Divine Designs Hair Salon, Anchor Bank, Elma HS pep band and football cheerleaders.
