Shannon Moralez Memorial Pool Tournament

The fourth annual Shannon Moralez Memorial Pool Tournament was Sept. 14 in Delta and proceeds were given to four families with a member dealing cancer or another serious illness. The family of Shannon Moralez started the tournament in 2010 as a way to remember the young man who battled leukemia and graft-versus-host disease and to help other families with medical expenses. The tournament champion was Mike Mullin of Montrose. Patrick Hayes of Grand Junction was in second place; Allen Krill of Montrose, third place; and Gary Lanier of Grand Junction, fourth place. Donation and tournament information is available by calling Theresa Garcia at 970-361-8691. Ben Gibson, 13, of Montrose has a malignant germinoma brain tumor and is one of 3 percent of childhood cancers that are malignant germ cell tumors, according to tournament organizers. At the time of the tournament, Ben had received 42 chemo treatments at Children’s Hospital in Denver and planned to continue treatments. Ben’s parents are Leslie and James Gibson, and Ben has four siblings.
