LACONIA — The 7th Annual Robbie Mills Memorial 8 Ball Tournament held Saturday at the Funky Monkey in downtown Laconia raised over $3,600 for the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region and the WLNH Children's Auction.
Winner of the tournament was Tim Brulotte, who won every match during the day, while Don LeBlanc was the runner-up. Buddy Diltz placed third and Stan Brallier was fourth.
The tournament, which was started seven years ago by Mike Baron of Baron's Billiards as a benefit for the Boys and Girls Club, attracted 56 entries.
Baron was joined by Tony Felch, John Rich and Brenda Ferland of the Deja Vu Pub Mania Team, in running the event this year. The team raised over $20,000 for last year's Children's Auction and half of this year's proceeds from the Robbie Mills Tournament will go to the auction.
''We had a good tournament with lots of enthusiastic players and are looking to make it even bigger next year,'' said Baron, who along with Felch thanked all of the sponsors, including MetroCast, which donated $1,000.
