^ Volleyball Benefit
Raises over $1000
Steve Skinner
Those who attended the benefit
volleyball tournament Nov. 21 claim it as
being the largest crowd to fill Harris Courts
in recent memory. Promotion directors
estimated that well over 700 students,
faculty, and local townspeople gathered to
support the worthy cause.
The event raised over $1,000 for
the Southeastern Family Violence Center.
Its branch office is located in Laurinburg. A
contact point at the center, Director Anne
Doolen, was “elated” at the turnout which
supported the center not only financially
through ticket sales and proceeds, but also
in valuable public awareness.
The center, located in Lumberton,
North Carolina, is home to victims of
domestic violence. It houses abused
women and children, providing a shelter
for them as a place to stay in time of need.
A marketing class at St. Andrews
conceived and initiated the idea of a volley
ball tournament as a benefit fundraiser for
the center. St. Andrews students com
pletely organized and operated the event.
Director of the event, James C. Rollen said,
“Operations went smoothly despite the
learning process of organizing this event.”
The winner of the benefit’s title
game was the Southwood Supply Com
pany. They faced the 1987 DIAC season
champion Lady Knights volleyball team
from St. Andrews, who rolled in the first
eleven points of the match unanswered. In
all, just two games sealed the title victory
for Southwood Supply.
The event began with a face-off
between four squads from St. Andrews and
the communitbyey. A student team de
feated a faculty team, both from the col
lege, in first round action. As well, South
wood Supply Company outlasted Johnson
Brothers ConsU-uction Company. South
wood Supply then defeated the student
team to reach the finals for the match
against the Lady Knights, who received a
bye into the finals. All teams with the
exception of the Lady Knights consisted of
four men and two women.
Halftime activities kept the crowd
in gear during several breaks with a special
pre-Christmas performance firom the St.
Andrews Chorale. Santa Claus arrived (via
a red-suited, Grey Brewington) to deliver
goodies. Domino’s Pizza provided free
Ten members of both the St.
Andrews and Laurinburg communities
received awards. These included: Mark
Powell, Nathan Gibson, Carl and Margaret
Bennett, Bill Scott, Clarence Tapp, Peggy
Floyd, Mel Bringle, Sybil Sikes, Anne
Doolen, and Joann Williams.
