An ALTA/USTA fundraising face-off is underway, to raise money for “Bitsy Gets Decked-Out,” the campaign to bring shaded courtside viewing to Bitsy Grant Tennis Center.
ALTA & USTA team captains are asking all their players to support the campaign, with a giving deadline of September 30, 2016. As a prize, the team with the most contributions will have all fees waived for home matches through Spring 2017, and the team captain will receive a gift certificate.
So, With Two Weeks to Go, Who’s Winning?
As of September 14, Joan Merkle’s Thursday, Women’s C-8 team is killing it with $1,000 from 14 teammates. Marie Westmoreland’s Thursday, Women’s B-3 is close behind with $530 from 8 individuals. Many other women’s teams are catching up, with 3-4 donations apiece.
If you play in one of the more than 73 ALTA & USTA teams at Bitsy Grant this season, and haven’t donated to the “Bitsy Gets Decked-Out” campaign, there’s plenty of time to do it before the September 30 deadline.
You can donate online, use the flyer above, or send a check to “Friends of Bitsy Grant Tennis,” 1266 West Paces Ferry Road, Box 113, Atlanta, GA 30327. Be sure to list your team on the check or flyer, or, if donating online, use the drop-downs under “Team or Staff Referrer” to ensure your team gets full credit for your contribution! All gifts are tax-deductible.
A special “thank you!” to Friends of Bitsy Grant Board member Suzi Modisett and UTA staff member Denise Johnson for organizing this contest!
