Dear 2017 Players,
Thank you for playing in the tournament this year. Your continued support of the tournament is greatly appreciated. It was a fantastic weekend, even considering the rain and wind on Friday. As I would expect, you took it in stride and made the best of it. Friday’s rain and wind gave way to blue skies and mild temperatures the rest of the weekend. We saw some fantastic tennis and lots of smiling faces. To view pictures of the tournament, go to our Facebook page at Tennis 4 Cancer.
I do have some great news about our efforts towards the Hope Lodge. As many of you know, the focus of our tournament for the last few years has been the Hope Lodge of Jacksonville. This project has sought to raise $19.2 million to construct and operate Hope Lodge of Jacksonville, a residence that will provide lodging at no cost to cancer patients visiting the Greater Jacksonville area.
The final numbers are now in and we are very pleased to announce that we raised $39,483.00 during the 2017 Tennis4Cancer Tournament!!! This is a 20% increase from what we raised last year.
THANK YOU to all of our generous sponsors, players, and volunteers. We could not do this without all of your support!
We are also excited to announce that Hope Lodge will be breaking ground in August 2017!
Mark your calendars for next years tournament which will be held May 4, 5, & 6, 2018!
