Spike For Swat Sand Volleyball Tournament!

Students from The College of St. Scholastica and UMD, combined with the Rotaract clubs from CSS and Duluth are hosting a sand volleyball tournament as a fundraiser for refugees in Pakistan. The Tournament will take place at the Buffalo House in Duluth, MN on July 25th and 26th. Team registration is $100, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Swat Crisis. The 1st place winners will receive $300, 2nd place $200, and 3rd place $100. Registration deadline is July 17th.

A little bit about the Swat Crisis: The Pakistani government launched an operation against the Taliban in the Swat Valley which led to a humanitarian crisis. The UNHCR announced that 3.5 million civilians have fled the war zone. All the proceeds from the tournament will be used to support these affected souls. $100 can support 8 families of 4 for a week.
