GALLOWAY – The Circle K Club at Richard Stockton College played a volleyball tournament last month to help six area charities.

The second annual Volleyball tournament in the I wing gymnasium Friday, Nov. 16 was held to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Salvation Army, Special Olympics, Ryan’s Quest, Susan G. Komen and the Embrace Kids Foundation.

Twelve teams participated.  Each team member paid $3.

“As a community service club, our goal is to volunteer 3,000 hours and raise $1,000 into our six charity fundraisers,” Circle K secretary Lauren Gardiner said. “This event raised $170. We now have $745, but we’re not stopping here. Our goal is $1,000. We’ll get there.”

Hooters Tropicana helped sponsor the event and supplied the first and second place teams and the best-dressed team with an All-You-Can-Eat wing night after the game.

Stockton’s men’s volleyball team took first place.

“I’m a member of Stockton’s Volleyball team,” junior Joe Ewald said. “I love the game, but playing for charity was a great feeling.  The event was organized and I had a great time.”

The Circle K Club spends its time serving the community. 

Members have dedicated 2,469 hours this semester.

Circle K projects include helping prepare food for the needy at Atlantic City High School, playing blackjack with residents at Sunrise Assisted Living, making stuffed animals for those in children’s hospitals, assisting the Salvation Army, helping students with homework and serving dinner to the homeless at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

The club also holds fundraisers including a yard sale and the volleyball tournament to meet its charitable goals.

Meetings are 8 p.m. Wednesdays in F206.
