       For the second year, Coronado High School will host a charity dodgeball tournament featuring the area's top two law enforcement officials - El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder and Colorado Springs Police Chief Pete Carey.
       The event will be Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Coronado gym at 1590 W. Fillmore St.
       Proceeds will go to Teens with Promise, a nonprofit organization in Colorado Springs that helps needy teens.
       About 10 teams from different schools - as well as from Teens with Promise - are expected to compete in the one-day tourney.
       Admission is free, but donations of cash or “good-condition” clothing will be requested at the door, according to Sheriff's Deputy Travis Kitowski. He is helping organize the fundraiser with the Youth Advisory Council, an informal area-student group that meets regularly with Carey and Elder.
