Shane Van Boening Pool Challenge for TSD in Waco Sep 6, 2008

Shane Van Boening

Shane Van Boening, reigning US Open Champ and 2007 Predator World Ten-ball Champion, makes a special appearance this Saturday, at Clicks Billiards in Waco.  Clicks is the site for a mid-level pool tournament, starting at noon on Saturday, September 6.  

Because Van Boening's skill and accomplishments prevent him from competing with mid-level players in the tournament, he will be challenging those brave enough to take him on in a game of Nine-ball, with proceeds going to the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD).  Challengers will pay $10.00 for a game with Van Boening, which will be donated to TSD, and will also be entered in a drawing for a chance to win exciting prizes.  The public is invited to participate.

The Texas School for the Deaf, located in Austin, is the oldest continuously operating publicly funded school in Texas.  Opened in 1857 with only four students, the campus now serves students ages 0-22, and provides outreach and educational resources for deaf students, their families and professionals in the field throughout the state of Texas.  With educational excellence and a strong belief in a culture and community that allows students to form a unique identity based on their individual strengths and talents, rather than their disabilities, TSD is an environment where students learn, grow, and belong.
