The nurses of the Recruitment, Retention, and Recognition Council at St. Vincent Evansville are holding a sand volleyball tournament to benefit the Rebekah Shinabarger Scholarship Fund. Rebekah Shinabarger was a Registered Nurse in St. Mary’s Intensive Care Unit while a graduate student. She had a passion for Jesus, for putting others first and for demonstrating a love and joy that was contagious to others. She was an excellent example of a real team player. Within a month after running mini-marathons, Rebekah unexpectedly experienced multiple organ failure and passed away. Many of her coworkers and friends wear pink or purple heart pins to remember Rebekah’s excellent nursing skills, her servant heart and her contagious smile. The Rebekah Shinabarger Scholarship Fund was initiated by Rebekah’s family to financially assist a student who shares Rebekah’s passions and is currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate nursing degree.
The sand volleyball tournament will be held at Wesselman Park Sand Volleyball Courts on Saturday, June 10. Check-in on tournament day is 8:00 a.m. with games beginning at 9:00 a.m. Registrants can form teams of 10 or join individually and be matched with open teams. Teams are guaranteed two games of play. Prizes awarded for best team uniform. There are winner and loser brackets. Tournament bracket will be sent to all team captains by June 2, 2017.
Registration is open at StVincentSWIN.org/SandVolleyball. The $15 per person registration includes a tournament t-shirt.
