Marielle Calizo, 33 yrs. old, has been a top respected female pool player in
Las Vegas, NV for over 10 years. She suffered a massive stroke on May 7th,
2010 and is recovering from temporary paralysis. We held our first
fundraising event for Marielle on May 30th at Pool Sharks and raised over
$3,000 from local players, tavern sponsors and league owners in town, which
assisted with medical equipment. Unfortunately, the Hyperbaric Oxygen
Therapy as well as Physical Therapy is extremely expensive, with no medical
benefits. So we are pleased to announce a second fundraising tournament of
Scotch Doubles 8-ball to be held at the Las Vegas Cue Club on July 24th.
All players are welcome!
