Community event supports sports

NACHES, Wash. -   Local sports teams are benefiting from an annual community event in Naches.  

Every fall the Naches Sportsman's Days attracts thousands of people.

This event began as a way to celebrate the fall harvest, but has transformed into a fundraiser for sports and community clubs.

The Naches High School Volleyball team uses the event as a way to raise money.

"The money we are earning this weekend will pay for our sweatsuits, our warm-up and sweatsuits," said Mary Rennie, varsity volleyball coach. "The booster club that's raising this, the volleyball booster club, will use the money to purchase that, and that is an item that normally isn't covered by uniform costs at the high school."
