This is the fourth year Rhys Dulisch, a local high school student, has organized the tournament in memory of his best friend Ty Santavy who died in 2008 at age 7 after having a liver transplant.

The charities benefitting from this year’s proceeds are the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation and Ronald McDonald House (Southwestern Ontario).

The Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation will use the donation of $5,111 to purchase necessary medical equipment.

To date, the Soccer Dogs Tournament has raised close to $30,000 for charity.

Rhys is already planning for next year’s tournament to be held on May 27, 2017.
