Save the date! The 9th annual McDaniel Tennis Teaching Pro’s Tournament is coming very soon, to be played from the 12th to the 16th of March.
The tournament, played annually between the teaching professionals and ball boys of the La Romana Country Club and the La Terraza Tennis Club in Casa de Campo, is the principle fundraising effort for the Ball Boy’s Scholarship Foundation.
Having raised a whopping US$46,500 last year with the tournament last year, the Ball Boy’s Scholarship Foundation, which funds the education for 27 ball boys and ball girls, was able to award a college sponsorship to one of the graduating ball boys for the first time!
We now have 27 ball boys enrolled in our scholarship program, 58 players and ball boys attending weekly English glasses, 45 players (including 12 alumni) playing in the tournament, as well as one student, Keury Herrera on our first college scholarship.
This year our goal is to raise an addition US$15,000 in order to provide health insurance for all the players.
— Rick McDaniel, founder and president of the McDaniel Tennis Teaching Pro’s Tournament
This year, the McDaniel Tennis Committee, of which Casa de Campo Living and SILGON is part, is once again hoping to raise even more funds to continue increasing the number of ball boys educated under the Ball Boy’s Scholarship Foundation. So if YOU would like to help support this cause, individual sponsors from the Casa de Campo community are very welcome, with suggested donations between US$150 up to US$5,000, while there is also a “Corporate Sponsorship” option with Silgon Inc., Marketing, Web Development & Publishing Services as the lead sponsor.
