A ball tournament this weekend is being held to raise money for a young mother who recently lost her battle with cancer.

The Jen Hickling Ball Tourney is a fundraiser/fun ball tourney in memory of Jen Hickling from Elko, who died last week aged just 33.

“Jen loved playing ball,” said her friend, Sara Mitchell. “She was always excited when ball season came around. It was a time for fun, friends, laughs and some wins!”

The tourney is being held July 28 and possibly the 29 depending on how many teams register, at the ball fields near the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie.

There is a $100 entry fee per team, and all proceeds as well as money raised through a barbecue and raffle will be given directly to Jen’s long term boyfriend, Paul and their daughter Payton.

For more information call Sara Mitchell at 250-430-7433 or Shiann Martin at 250-278-6120.

“We hope to see a large turn out to this event to support family and friends through a good day of ball as well as raise cash for a father and daughter,” said Sara.
