Fundraiser to help Jensen with expenses
By Katie Zerr –
A group of area dart throwers are coming together to help a friend and fellow darter in his battle against cancer.
On Saturday, June 22, there will be a draw doubles, round-robin dart tournament to help Mobridge resident Jay Jensen with expenses accrued during his fight with cancer. The non-profit Scarecrow Hollow organization and Rick Morris, owner of The Silver Dollar Saloon, will host the tourney and also help with donations.
“We wanted to help someone who has always helped us and has been a part of our dart community,” said Leslie Fischer who is helping to organize the benefit. “Jay, through his job, has always been there to helps us with any board problems we had and now we want to help him.”
All proceeds and half of the entry fees will go to Jensen. Sign up for the tournament will be from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Silver Dollar. The tournament is open to anyone 21 years old and older.
Fischer said and there will be raffles and prizes given away throughout the night.
“The Mobridge community has been very generous with their donations to help Jay and we have some really nice items to raffle,” she said. “It is just going to be an over all great night to help a great guy.”
Fischer said people don’t have to be dart players to enjoy the night and the tournament and encourages people to attend for the fun and to help Jensen.
“This was the best and most fitting way we could think of to get as many people we could involved in help out Jay,” said Fischer.
Anyone who would like to make a donation to the tournament event can contact Fischer at 848-2062.
