Vero Beach event aims to help wipe out rabies

June 24, 2018 by  

Although rabies may seem like a thing of the past, it still affects people all over the world, and a Vero Beach tennis event will seek to raise both funds and awareness to help fight this disease in Malawi.

The plans for the occasion include both a men’s and women’s doubles tournament, and the entry fee for this is $15 per contestant. This includes a special drink, and prizes will be awarded to the winners. Those who would like to improve their game will be able to take part in either an adult beginners’ clinic, which is for those who are new to the game, or the junior tennis carnival.

Along with the tennis, there will be Beat the Pro sessions and serving contests on offer, as well as free activities for the kids. A live and silent auction have also been planned, and there will be live music, while Counter Culture serves up an assortment of barbecue treats. A local banner printing company can provide reusable pop-up banners and other materials for this type of function.

The Boulevard Tennis Club will be the location of this event. It has been organized for July 29 and 30, and both tennis lovers and those who just want to lend a hand to the cause are welcome to attend.
