ARLINGTON — The Arlington Courts Volleyball Club held a sand volleyball tournament Saturday to raise money for Nina Cherry and her family. She's the mother who was carjacked and run over while waiting to pick up her kids from school at Pantego Christian Academy last month.
Competitors paid $30 each to play, with every cent going directly to Cherry's family.
"We consider our club a family, and we had a family member injured that we had to help out, so we decided to run this tournament to benefit them," said club owner Mike Siska.
Participant Megan Crowe felt a positive vibe at the fundraiser. "It makes me feel good, people coming out to help, and there's actually a lot of people here so it's really supportive," she said.
Organizers hoped to raise more than $3,000 for the Cherry family.
