Sound Shore’s Breast Cancer Benefit Scores Big!

Sound Shore Indoor Tennis’ 3rd annual 3.0-3.5 Doubles Tournament on October 19, 2016, to benefit breast cancer research was a huge success!  Donations from entry fees, hat purchases, hairband proceeds and free will donations totaled $1,400.00.  With the triple match opportunity at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center this month, we hit a new record donation of $4,200.00.  Thank you to all who participated and contributed to this worthy cause.

Tennis Director, Dale Balun, and Women’s League Director, Bea Tully, did an excellent job organizing the matches with 11 teams competing in a round-robin format from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Refreshments and award ceremony followed.  Special thanks to Ilene Evans, our Manager, and Sound Shore staff for planning and preparations.

Our thanks to Wilson, The Tennis Professionals and VG Hair Design for their support and prizes.

Pink Ribbon baseball caps are still available this month at our Front Desk for a donation of $10.
