Tampa, Florida -- A fundraiser is being held on Saturday, Feb. 22 for the daughter of a fallen Tampa Police detective who is desperate need of a liver transplant.
Dodgeball 2 You announced Friday that they'll be working with Roni-Kay Lopez on a dodgeball tournament to benefit Demetra Jones, the daughter of fallen TPD Detective Randy Bell.
Detective Bell and his partner, Detective Ricky Childers, were killed on May 19, 1998 by Hank Earl Carr while they were transporting Carr back to headquarters.
Jones is reportedly in need of a liver transplant and needs $300,000 to be put on the list.
The event will take place at the East Bay Youth Buccaneers football fields on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Tournament registration is open to the public with an entry fee of $10 per person. Each team consists of five players, with proceeds benefiting Demetra Jones and her medical bills.
Registration is available here.
Participation is open to children and adults aged 7 and up. Adult supervision is required for children under the age of 12. Sign-ups are based on a first come, first serve basis. Participants may be added to a waiting list if we reach 1,000 players.
The event will be open to the public to watch, free of charge. There will be no day of registration and the deadline to register is February 19th, 2014. There will be donation and raffle opportunities available before and during the matches.
