The tournament will help support Two by Two Animal Rescue as the cost to enter the tournament is $40 per team.

The top teams will receive cash or donated prizes and all teams are guaranteed three matches at minimum.

Two-by-Two Animal Rescue is a 501 C (3) no-profit, no-kill organization. Two-by-Two began in 2002 when Sonya Smith began feeding strays in Old Town Helena, according to their website.

She noticed another concerned citizen had been leaving food for them too and placed a note in a bowl. The note was found. They met and combined their efforts to rescue the many stray dogs dodging traffic.
