Olivia Clyde, at the tournament.

The Olivia Clyde Dodge Ball Benefit Tournament was held Feb. 28 at Cam-plex Central Pavilion in Gillette, WY. Olivia’s dad Mike Clyde works at Dry Fork Station. Watch the video.

Olivia, age 14, was diagnosed last year with Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer. Olivia, her parents and her brothers, Devin, Alexander and Wyatt, have a long road ahead of them. Dry Fork Station and the community has been helping them offset medical costs with various fundraisers including a silent and live auction held in December 2013.

Eleven teams signed up, including two “Team Olivia” teams selected from Dry Fork Station employees. There was even a team made up of Dry Fork Station management. There were three guns donated and gun raffle tickets were sold over the past two months. More than $10,000 was raised total including the tournament and gun raffle ticket sales.

All winning teams donated their winnings back to the family.

    I work for Dakota Valley Electric Co-op and was thinking about doing a dodge ball tournament for our Relay for Life Team. Can you tell me who I could talk to a Basin to get specifics on how you did your dodge ball fund raiser.
