Volleyball fundraiser in memory of fallen officer

A fundraiser volleyball game between Colusa and Pierce could provide a healthy outlet for a grieving community.

From the tears of tragedy, athletes will honor fallen Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona with the first Colusa County Corona Classic. 

The fundraiser will be held at the Pierce High School in the gym on July 20, starting at 5 PM.

Corona was well known as a Pierce athlete while attending the school. Friends, family, and law enforcement supporters are welcome to enjoy one of Corona’s favorite sports.

“We’re just trying to get two rival schools together for a good cause,” said Kim Travis, who is organizing the event with Tina Lyons.

The evening begins with an Alumni “Just-for-Fun” game, and afterwards the serious competition will begin. 

Dinner will be provided from Sauced, a popular food truck based in Arbuckle. Gourmet hotdogs, hamburgers, and fries will be available for purchase. The popular energy drinks will be served by Rise & Grind, Arbuckle’s coffee shop. Tacos will be available at the snack bar (cash only). A limited number of t-shirts will also be available at $15.

Desert will not be the typical cupcake fare. Many lavish deserts on elegant serving platters, donated by parents and grandparents of current players, will be auctioned off between the “Just for Fun” and the competitive matches.

The fundraiser proceeds will go to the Colusa County Scholarship Foundation, in Natalie Corona’s name. Each year a scholarship will be awarded to a student from Pierce and a student from Colusa High School.

An area with a backdrop of thin blue line flag and blue and gold flowers will be a photo opportunity.

Corona’s younger sister, Kathy, will be competing along with 19 other alumni. The “Just for Fun” alumni from Pierce will have a team of 13 players. ■
