Volleyball fundraiser in memory of passionate Vernon player

Sky Volleyball Club will be hosting their 5th annual fundraiser at Wings Vernon on April 25.

Sky Volleyball Club will host its annual fundraiser this month to honour the memory of Emily Dahl, who suddenly passed away in January.

The Dahl family along with Paige Noakes, Kristina Tobler and Tom Watkinson announced their joint venture with the club for the 2019 Sky Volleyball Club nationals fundraiser, which will take place at Wings Vernon Thursday, April 25, 5:30 p.m. The fifth annual gala event aims to raise money to send Vernon athletes to Toronto May 9 to 11.

A donation of $5,000 was recently made on behalf of the club by friends of Dahl.

“This year’s event is special to all of us at Sky Volleyball Club,” said Troy Lorenson. “Passion and positivity was what Emily was all about and all Sky club players are excited to compete in May and even more excited to make this year’s gala a tremendous success.”

The 2019 gala will have Nicholas Friesen, Dahl’s brother, as the keynote speaker. According to her family, the club was extremely important to Dahl, who was a cherished friend to many in Vernon. Her brother said he is excited to speak at this year’s event.

“Our goal this year is to bring the message of love, compassion and kindness to the gala. Emily was all about these wonderful and important virtues,” said Noakes, who encouraged everyone to get tickets early.

The evening also includes a silent and live auction, with a couple of hot items up for grabs from The Electric Fat Bike Company in Vernon and The Capilano Golf Club in Vancouver.

“These are awesome items and will add to our growing list of silent and live auction items,” said Jami Mitchell, with the Sky Volleyball Club. “That you to these generous organizations.”

Tickets can be purchased at Wings Vernon, which is located at 5200 Anderson Way.
