Evan Cousineau was a water polo player known throughout the Southern California pool decks for his competitive spirit and love for life. He battled a rare genetic disorder but throughout his journey, he demonstrated a true fighter’s spirit and has been an inspiration to many. We lost Evan in 2007 but his spirit lives on. In honor of Evan, this tournament will benefit the Be a Hero, Become a Donor (BAHBAD) Foundation which is designed to promote marrow, blood and organ donation so that we all can be heros and help others who may be battling life threatening situations by providing hope. For more info go to BeAHeroBecomeADonor.org This is the 10th year of this event and in the first nine years more than $200,000 has been raised for the foundation thru this event and its peripheral aspects (silent auction, direct donations, etc.), new donors were signed up and kids had a fun filled and competitive weekend.
