3rd Annual Copa De Dillon Soccer Tournament Held Sept. 25 to Honor Richard Dillon Henry’s Birthday

The third annual Copa De Dillon soccer tournament will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. on September 25 at Palisades High’s Stadium by the Sea. Teams and volunteers are sought to play/work this event, which is held in honor and memory of Richard Dillon Henry’s birthday.

Dillon, who lived in Rustic Canyon, was an honor student at PaliHi. The 17-year-old’s life was tragically lost on July 6, 2007 in a car accident. The son of Harriet Zaretsky and Stephen Henry, and brother to Taylor, was mourned by the community.

In Dillon’s honor, his parents started the Dillon Henry Foundation, which gives college scholarships to PaliHi graduating students (Dillonslist.org). The proceeds from this tournament will benefit that foundation.

There will be eight coed teams, with 5 v. 5 play. Each team will play three games, with a trophy awarded to the winner and medals to runner-ups. Preregistration is a $350 donation to the Dillon Henry Foundation. New this year is the Cornhole Tournament, and each two-person team can register with a $20 donation.

Volunteers are sought to help with food and merchandise vendors and raffle promotion. To register a team or volunteer, e-mail Daviswiklyl@gmail.com or call (310) 869-3235 or email Harriet@dillonslist.org or call (310) 459-2689.
