The event is hosted by the Throw Me A Cure Relay Team, South Louisiana Trail and family and friends of Frankie. The event raises money for Frankie Champagne Jr., a native of Edgard and resident of Luling, who was diagnosed with non small-cell lung cancer in 2007 and has been unable to work since June 2009 due to the effects of the cancer treatment.
The tournament is also looking for sponsors to donate money or door prizes.
