The 7th Annual Tennis Ball, generously sponsored by Grande Aire Services, Inc., Gulf to Bay Sotheby’s International Realty, and Italiano Insurance Services, Inc., and hosted by the Boca Grande Club, raised over $40,000 for the programs, services, and homeless pets here at Suncoast Humane Society. This fundraising event is vital to the continuation of our mission to “reduce the number of homeless animals and improve the quality of life.”
A seven week Boca Grande Club Professional Tennis Exhibition Series begins later this week to continue to raise funds for us. It will be held every Wednesday from January 28 through March 11 at the Boca Grande Club tennis courts. Sixteen of southwest Florida’s top male and female players will be competing for $5,000 in prize money. There will be three women’s doubles, three men’s doubles and one mixed doubles match between the top women and men point earners of the series. Come out and watch former world professional players play top level doubles while enjoying a beverage during a warm Florida sunset. A $5 donation to benefit the Suncoast Humane is suggested.
