Enlisting Beaches-Area Women to Play Tennis Doubles
or Join the Volunteer Team
There is a growing excitement as the 13th anniversary of SenioRITAs Doubles Tennis Tournament at Sawgrass Country Club approaches. With an all-volunteer team effort insuring that 100% of the event’s proceeds go directly to fighting breast cancer through research, the SenioRITAsweekend event has already raised over $621,000 since 2000. The disease strikes 1 in 8 women and SenioRITAs want researchers to find a cure.
SenioRITAs proceeds from donations, tournament entry fees, party and auction directly benefit critical medical research and patient services at Mayo Clinic,Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center Beaches. A total of 286 women participated last year with 23 out-of-state-players. All money raised in Northeast Florida stays in our community, but exciting research efforts hold promise for hundreds of women everywhere who may face breast cancer diagnosis in the future.
Beginning with a Party and Auction on Wednesday, October 17 hosted by Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, the fundraising event includes a live & silent auction, raffles, light cuisine and cash bar. The cost to attend is $35 for non-players & complimentary for registered tennis teams.
There are tennis spots open to women age 40 and older throughout the Jacksonville area to join the doubles tournament as well as for volunteers who want to contribute their time and talents throughout the weekend’s special events. The Doubles Tournament Play begins Friday, October 19 thru Sunday, October 21. The cost to enter is $75/per player which entitles player to attend the October 17 Party & Auction.
ON-LINE TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION BEGINS IN MID JULY!
