6th Annual SIS platform tennis tournament

I wanted to thank all the great and generous women who participated in this years event. The committee so appreciates the 104 teams and family and friends who came out yesterday and made the event perfect. The weather was magnificent for the most part. We had Women who traveled from Canada and one I met from Pennsylvania. The after event was very successful and gets better every year with the generosity of the volunteers and sponsors. The mission of SIS was brought home when Andrea Caruso told us about a women who was scheduled for a mastectomy and was worried about being evicted. SIS was able to pay 2 months rent for her and allow her to maintain her dignity and heal from a difficult surgery. Our fund raising helps so many....600 women so far! So Please come out next year and let's make our tournament the largest women's tournament in the country!!! We need 128 teams next year!!!
