Serve2Cure Tennis Tournament to benefit breast cancer patients

Special to The Sun

Sandestin Tennis is ready to serve the community with an event to help raise funds for breast cancer. The annual Serve2Cure Tennis Tournament is scheduled 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 6 at the Sandestin Tennis Center.

The goal of this breast cancer fundraising tournament is to assist underserved breast cancer patients with much needed support through the Breast Cancer program at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. The oncology department of Sacred Heart Hospital is the only treatment center in the Emerald Coast area that will accept non-insured patients.

 “The passion of the tennis staff combined with loyal guests and members and the local community make this a winning cause and effort,” said Todd Hanson, director of Sandestin Tennis. “We are playing for our mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, wives, best friends and neighbors.”

Players and guests are invited to participate in a variety of activities on Oct. 6. The event will include breakfast, men and women round robin tournament play, fastest serve contest, silent auction items, lunch and much more.

Serve2Cure tournament tickets are on sale for a price of $100 per person. Special pricing is also available for the event not including the tournament for $30. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets email or call 850.267.7060. 

Last year, the Serve2Cure Tennis Tournament raised $15,500.
