Boca Swings Into Action to Benefit the Boys & Girls Club
Annual Tennis Tournament to Be Held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club
BOCA RATON, FLA. (November 7, 2014) — Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton will hold its Annual Tennis Tournament at the Boca Raton Resort & Club on Sunday, February 8, 2015. The tournament is a doubles round-robin that is open to adult players of all skill-levels. Single players are encouraged to play and will be matched at the tournament for doubles play. All levels of play welcome. Players will enjoy snacks and beverages before the competition begins and, after the tournament, light fare and refreshments will be served.
“This tournament is one of the Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton’s annual fundraising events,” said Bill Cappeller, “This year we hope to raise $15,000. Money raised will fund local children, at the Club, throughout the year.”
Numerous sponsorship opportunities are available. Among this year’s sponsors is Merrill Lynch – Cappeller Marko Group.
The matches will be divided into two divisions. In the “competitive division,” players will be able to test their metal against all comers. In the “social division,” which will be more relaxed, players will be able to play their best tennis in a fun but still challenging environment. Players may also play in post-tournament drills and games, bid on items offered in a silent auction, and try their luck in a raffle. Check-in will begin at 11:00 a.m. and play will begin at 12:15 p.m. Space is limited, so interested players are urged to register early. The entry fee for individual players is $100.00 and $50 for spectators.
Leading the charge this year, are committee members: Marta Aislant, Martin Blackman, Judy Bond, William Cappeller, Jane Fatigati, Gil Koppel, Brett Maynard, Catherine Rappaport, Erik Silver and Scott Williams.
All proceeds from the Annual Tennis Tournament will help support programming for more than 100 children who attend the Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton for a safe, fun, and educational environment after school and during the summer. Children participate in a variety of programs in the arts; education and career development; sports, fitness and recreation; technology; character and leadership development; and health and life skills.
