Pribyl Power

 

Hundreds of people streamed into Irish Stadium before the Maple Lake Lakers took on the Loretto Larks. Their purpose was to support and raise money for the family of Trevor Pribyl, who was first diagnosed with a brain stem tumor three years ago.
That goal was achieved as more than $12,500 was raised.
“I’m very proud of our community,” said Tonya Klug, one of the organizers of the event. “I couldn’t believe the generosity.”
Trevor’s mom, Rachel Pribyl, couldn’t believe it either.
“There’s not even words that can explain it,” she said. “It was very, very humbling and amazing that that many people would cut their holiday weekend short to support us. It was amazing. I spent a lot of time hiding my tears behind my sunglasses.”
