Cricket tournament for Easterseals

PEORIA - Hundreds of people showed up to watch the first ever winter cricket tournament in Peoria Sunday.

The tournament is a fundraiser for Easterseals, put on by the Cricket Association of Peoria.

The event was more than just cricket matches. They also had bouncy houses, face painting and balloon twisters for the kids.

One organizer says, "We want to do something for Easterseals. We wanted to bring the sport. Like my husband and there are other players that are really passionate about cricket, so we wanted to combine our passion and help the community at the same time."

They sold 500 tickets before the matches started, with all of the proceeds going to Easterseals.
