First Dodgeball Tourney for Perry Hi-Way Hose Company

Posted: Updated:

Perry Hi-Way Hose Company held its first annual dodgeball tournament on Sunday to help raise funds.

Family First Sports Park donated use of their facility for the tournament and the Erie Sports Store donated the dodgeballs. 

Sunday's tourney brought in more than three-hundred people, and 25 teams, including teams from Buffalo.      

Perry Hose is an all-volunteer fire, rescue, and EMS service that serves Summit Township and supports crews in the surrounding areas. 

 "It costs a lot of money to keep up with a fire department, even a volunteer one. The equipment costs a lot of money, the training costs a lot of money, so every single dollar helps," said Kyle Liebold of Family First Sports Park, who is also a former volunteer at Perry HOse. 

"Anybody who's willing to risk their life to save a house or save somebody else, that's definitely a cause worth supporting every time," said Jeff Kauffman of Erie, on the John V. Schultz team. 

"Especially in the brutal winter that we've had. I mean, give them all the props in the world. They're true heroes," added Caleb Schenk, a teammate also from Erie. 

The event raised about a thousand dollars.
