Digs for Denise volleyball tournament in Maple Valley | Slideshow

When Erinn Cassidy decided six weeks ago to organize Digs for Denise, a volleyball tournament fundraiser for Wings of Karen in honor of her friend who is battling triple negative breast cancer, she hoped to raise $1,000.

Cassidy was astonished after the tournament, which was held at Lake Wilderness Park on Aug. 3, when the total came to more than $6,000 and continued to grow, eventually passing the $7,200 mark.
