Dodge for a Cause event raises $750 for youth mentoring program
Approximately $750 was raised at Friday night’s Dodge for a Cause event for the launching of a Youth Mentoring Program in Webster City.
“We’re really appreciative of the community that we live in and that they rally to help support not only youth, but causes in the community,” said Bee Inspired CAPP Program Coordinator Tiffany Larson. “The youth and adults that attended really helped to make it a success this year.”
Twelve teams took to the court to best their opponents. Seven community teams and five middle school teams participated.
The Black Mambas won the middle school bracket. The Black Mambas included team members Brendyn Carlsen, Treyton Sinclair, Tucker Clabaugh, Tucker Gordon, Jonathan (Jon) Magdaleno, Aaron Parr, Lane Olson, Tristen Maxwell, Gabe Rollins, and Sunrock Lam.
In the community/family combo bracket, Mornin’ Glory Coffee took home first place honors. Their team consisted of Brody Henderson, Jayce Ogg, Madeline Ogg, Cole Hilpipre, Tucker Murray, Nate Carroll, Jacob Clabaugh, Colby Larson, Jesse & Mia Ogg, and Shawn Anderson.
“It definitely was very humbling to have so many players and spectators in the audience to help raise funds for the mentoring program,” said Larson. “We have five seniors that really worked hard as part of the SHIFT Happens program to put this event together and it really means a lot to have people supporting it.”
Nearly 200 people attended the annual event, with 120 of those individuals participating
“My favorite part, I think of the whole night, was seeing the youth-adult connections out on the court,” said Larson.
Larson thanked the community, organizations and individuals who contributed their time and resources to the event.
“It wouldn’t have been possible without all of the volunteers, the teams, the people in the stands and all of the awesome businesses and organizations that donated for the raffle item,” said Larson.
