National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
January 29, 2013

For the past 7 years I have been producing/hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Tennis Tournament at our local fitness center, Peninsula Community Center, in Redwood City, California. Each year I register up to 64 tennis players, and they come out for a morning or afternoon to help raise money that will go to Breast Cancer Awareness programs. This year National Breast Cancer Foundation was one of our recipients!
We have groups of 16 ladies at a time come out for food, tennis, raffles, silent auctions and a lot of fun!

This BCA Tennis Tournament was created after I had two friends diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I didn't know what I could do to help, so I decided to do something with the two things I love ----TENNIS and FRIENDS! The ladies all pay a registration fee to play and then help out even more by purchasing raffle tickets, bidding on auction items or making direct donations.

We also provide a table with information on Breast Cancer Awareness literature, and many times we have a survivor come to pass along information about the importance of self exams and regular check ups.

We have a blast each year getting together while doing something good. Our club's motto is about building "community" and we certainly have built a strong supportive community through this annual tournament.
