Volleyball tourney to aid Coach’s family


BRAWLEY – A community volleyball tournament will be hosted by Betsy Enders at Brawley Union High School in order to raise funds for the family of Alisa Cunningham, Brawley High graduate and the daughter of popular local coach, Len Schnittker.

On March 17, Alisa Cunningham and her three children were hit by a drunk driver driving the wrong way on State Route 52 in San Diego.  All four were seriously injured, but are slowly beginning to recover from the accident.  However the hospital funds and rehabilitation expenses will be high, and Enders, a retired BUHS PE teacher, hopes to help contribute to some of their expenses with the tournament.

“I just felt the need to do something, having known them for so long,” said Enders, who taught with Schnittker at BUHS and knew Cunningham when she was at school.

Signups are open right now to all teams around the valley, but will close on June 10 and the tournament will take place on June 15.  Entry fee will be $100 per team.  Food will be provided by the high school snack bar and raffles will be going during the games.

Every dime earned of the proceeds from the tournament, raffles, and food will go towards the Cunningham Accident fund.
