‘Nets for Heart’ fundraiser Friday

“Nets for Heart,” a volleyball match between Carson Valley and Pau-Wa-Lu middle school staff members, is being held Friday to help raise funds for the American Heart Association. The match is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Carson Valley Middle School, immediately after the Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department 5th/6th grade basketball championship game. Regardless of the end result, the match is designed to promote fitness, fun, community, and support the American Heart Association at the same time, according to event spokesperson Janae Ballingham.

“Our mission is to bring awareness to our community and raise a little money for American Heart Association in a fun way,” Ballingham said.

The cost is $1 for students and $2 for adults, which includes one raffle ticket and a possibility for a prize. American Heart T-shirts may be purchased by fans in the color of the school they wish to support — red for Pau-Wa-Lu and black for Carson Valley. Purchase of a shirt for $8 includes an admission ticket to the game and four raffle tickets.
