Our 2006 recipient was Tausha Hunter, a 14 year old with cancer. $20,300.00 was raised for Tausha and her family along with personal gifts of interest from the community that valued well over $2,000.00. We are saddened to share with you the news that Tausha passed away on May 29th, slightly more than one week after our tournament.
Tausha, although very ill on the day of the tournament, was able to attend and was willing to draw the winning names out of a hat for the annual raffle. After the presentation of the gift and an extremely long ovation, Tausha asked for the microphone and whispered a courageous, "Thank-You", in which another round of applause erupted.
