2009 Hopes & Dreams Racquetball Tournament
October 15-18, 2009

Formally known as the “Slaying the Beast” Tournament This tournament is a fundraiser to help raise money for Cancer Research in HOPES of finding a cure and to help fulfill DREAMS for those where research is too late. Warren Bailey and Michelle Bruchhauser are the driving force behind this event which usually draws the most participants of any Anchorage Racquetball tournaments.


Why money is needed for research:

• Cancer is Alaska’s number one killer
• 1 in 2 men will develop cancer during their lifetime
• 1 in 3 women will develop cancer during their lifetime
• 3 in 4 families will care for a family member with cancer


• The Dream Lives On grants dreams to Alaskan adults who have been diagnosed with a year or less to live.
• Making dreams come true helps these remarkable individuals in our community by offering a respite, a time for happiness, an opportunity to create lasting memories for those left behind.
• A dream cannot provide a cure for our recipients but it can dramatically impact the quality of their lives with the joy experienced in a dream come true.

It’s never too late to help a dream come true…

This is a very SPECIAL Tournament and we hope to raise plenty of funds for the cause, Entry Fees: $30 members and $35 non-members for the first event; $8 for the second and third event; $15 for Juniors (18 yrs & under) for the first event. Juniors must play in a Junior division as their first event. Players may enter in 1 skill level and 1 age level, up to three events (3rd Event MUST BE MIXED DOUBLES ONLY). Deadline to enter is Sunday, October 11 @ 6pm.

There will be a silent auction with plenty of GREAT Items during the tournament to help raise funds for cancer research, If you have an item you would like to donate Please contact Warren Bailey @ 727-9860.
