Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser

We are working with Susan G. Komen in a Rally for the Cure Tennis Event for breast cancer awareness. Having many people in our lives being impacted by having breast cancer or just having cancer in general, our tennis club, Genesee Valley Sports Center, wish to help the people in our community in any way we can. In the community of Flint, which still hasn't quite recovered from the down turn in the economy, our goal is to help the many women out there who need to prevent this disease, or to catch it in time by getting a breast exam in a timely fashion. We hope to make a big impact.

What We Need

We would love to raise several thousand dollars for this event to donate to our local Susan G Komen chapter. But even if we do not reach our goal whatever money we have raised will still go to our local chapter. On October 27th at Genesee Valley Sports Center we will be having a rally event where we will conduct a day full of activities for our members/nonmembers and anyone who wishes to participate in the community. Our round robin tournament will be our biggest event along with the silent auction. Any money raised from these events will go right to Rally for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for breast cancer awareness.

Because we have an award-winning children's author on staff, Renee Hand, she will personally donate an author visit to any school in the United States who donates more than $300. She will be at the school all day talking and signing copies of her many books. She will contact the school personally and set up the visit.

The tennis pros on staff will also be donating private one hour lessons.We will be having things like beat the pro to win prizes. Clinics for all ages, seniors, adults, as well as for children. Tennis stroke analysis and much more. We have some great sponsors who have donated some wonderful silent auction items. The donation fee to be in the days events is $25. All money goes to Rally for the Cure and Susan G. Komen.

Anyone can also donate silent auction items if they do not have the funds. Whatever donation we receive is greatly appreciated in any form. The items must be received before the day of the event. Anyone can email questions to cdrahand@yahoo.com.

Other Ways You Can Help

Even if you can't donate anything, you can still help. Maybe you are a blogger or love to facebook. Please share with the world what we are doing. Make some noise and see if we can't help such a worthy cause as this.
