The team, which is organized and coached by Grant Shilling of the Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness Society, is looking for donations to help offset costs of travel to this tourney.

Those interested in making donations can reach Shilling at outreach@dawntodawn.org or mail cheques to Dawn to Dawn, 6C-821 Shamrock Place, Comox, B.C. V9M 4G4.
