A special fundraiser will take place tomorrow, Saturday, June 24th, at the Golden Cue. The money raised will help some young pool players.
Chastity Franco, City of Odessa’s Utilities Compliance Coordinator, and her fiancé run a Billiards Pool Jr League. They teach kids ages 5 to 17 the basics of pool and take them to compete around the United States.
They started this in September 2022 and have taken nine kids to compete in Vegas. They are also taking six kids to Quincy, Illinois, to compete in the Junior Nationals Championships next month. Then, back to Vegas in February for the World Championships, where the kids get to meet the Top Champion Pool Players around the world.
They are selling BBQ Plates as part of that fundraiser. We’ve also attached information on the Illinois event to give you some insight.
