Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - A pool tournament in Superior Saturday has helped raise money for one Northland woman suffering from breast cancer.

The Tina O'Neill Breast Cancer Foundation Pool Tournament, held at Mr. Lucky's Bar, is now in its fourth year.

It's a twofold event, in part remembering the life and legacy of Superiorite Tina O'Neill who lost her battle with breast cancer four years ago.

It also raises money through the tournament itself, and through raffles and auctions.

Every year, that money goes to someone in the Twin Ports who's currently battling breast cancer.

"We give all the money to them to do whatever they want with it," said family member Joey O'Neill, "they don't need to pay bills, or anything. They can go on vacation and do whatever they want with it."

Among the items in the raffle was an autographed Green Bay Packers football.
