Inaugural Virginia Beach dodgeball tournament puts focus on keeping people warm this winter

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A game of dodgeball in Virginia Beach put the focus on keeping people warm this winter.

The first "Best in the Beach" Dodgeball Tournament took place Saturday. It required participants to donate a gently-used coat, jacket or sweater.

"In today's day, I think it's just really more important than ever for people to come together as a community and really take into consideration what's really important," said Jared O'Flaherty, business relations director.
