Organizers say the players definitely don't mind chipping in to fight cancer. "Just about everybody that's a member of the team for these fundraisers has in some way had some member of their family or themselves been touched by cancer so we all have a personal interest in it," says Jacque Howard.

This group hopes to raise about $10,000 this year from fundraising. They have a pool tournament fundraiser scheduled for next month.
