Food for Thought tennis benefit at WaterColor Tennis

Special to The Sun

Nine million children in the U.S. live in food insecure households. Walton County is fortunate to have Food For Thought Outreach, Inc., a local charity dedicated to feeding hungry school children so they don’t have to worry where their next meal comes from.

Tennis players have an opportunity to both donate to this cause and have fun on the courts at the Second Annual Love All Tennis Round Robin benefiting Food for Thought. Hosted by WaterColor Tennis, the Love All event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 5 at the WaterColor courts.

New this year are a luncheon provided by Beachy Beach Realty and a silent auction featuring merchandise and services donated by local businesses.

If you register by Sept. 30, the donation is $25 and $30 thereafter. Early registration is suggested as space is limited to the first 40 players signed-up.

WaterColor Tennis will serve as a drop-off point for Food for Thought during the Love All event and will accept cash and food donations. Suggested items include peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna, instant oatmeal, non-sugary cereals, and healthy snacks; no glass, please.

Registration checks payable to Food for Thought Outreach should be mailed to Beachy Beach 30A 5410 East County Highway 30A, No. 103, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.

Local merchants who’d like to donate auction items should contact Hilary Farnum at 685-0171. All proceeds benefit Food for Thought, Inc.
