Fundraiser brings in $6,000 for Ivers

People had their bats swinging for a good cause over the weekend, raising nearly $6,000 for Steve Ivers, a local youth coach who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

Valerie Chavez, one of the tournament's coordinators, is expecting more money to come in by the end of the week.

"We're still getting proceeds from Stockmen's Liquors," Chavez said.

Stockmen's donated 10 percent of their sales from Friday and Saturday to the Ivers' fund.

The softball tournament, held at Loudy Simpson Park, included eight coed teams and six men's teams.

On the coed end, Just Another Ball Team took first place, while Dukes won the men's division.

"The turnout was much better than we hoped for," Chavez said.

This fundraiser was one of many that have been held for Ivers since the diagnosis in June.

Chavez said they were hoping for $5,000. She was very pleased with the proceeds, and hopes the total amount will continue to grow.
