Murphy family receives funds

Sunrise Optimist Club of Yuma with help and support from John Courtis and the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, raised over $3,000 in a bowling fundraiser held recently at Inca Lanes. The fundraiser was held to help offset a portion of increased expenses for the children in Yuma who are being treated for cancer, and have to travel to Phoenix to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. In the photo (from left) are Howard Blitz, on behalf of Sunrise Optimist Club of Yuma, Tracy Murphy (holding her son), Jason Murphy, Justin Murphy (Jason’s dad) and Tyler Murphy (Jason’s brother).
