SARASOTA - Salty Jim's Island Bar and Grill in Sarasota hosted a 9-ball double elimination tournament to benefit the organization SRQ vets. The organization is fully volunteer driven and events such as this makes it easier for SRQ vets to reach out to other veterans who may help. 

"We are a pretty private bunch a lot of the times and finding people to help is sometimes a problem so when we build a network through events like this of more people that are aware of we get messages about veterans in need," SRQ Vets' Joe Golembeski said.
