Tournament Cancelled

I just wanted to let you all know that an account for Sharde Daniels has been set up through Charter One Bank under the name "Daniels Gift Fund." This money will be used for Sharde to continue to participate in USA volleyball. This was discussed with Derrell in great length prior to his death and he wanted Sharde to play the sport he loved as long as she wanted. He did not want it to be a memorial fund, and for eligibility reasons it can be called a "gift" fund. If you could pass this information along to anyone who might be interested I would greatly appreciate it.
