Pro-Am Tennis Tournament + Gala
Special Guest, James Blake
Woodway Country Club, Darien, CT
September 12+13, 2014
Dear Friend of the Alliance:
We hope that you can join us as a team sponsor for the 2014 Alliance Invitational Pro-Am Tournament.
The Tournament Committee is planning another incredible event in September to benefit The Connecticut Alliance for Tennis + Education. We are organizing an exciting two days of fun and competitive tennis, a hitting session with James and Thomas Blake on Friday afternoon, and a Friday evening gala featuring Connecticut’s own, James Blake as our guest speaker.
Thanks primarily to this annual event, The Connecticut Alliance has made significant strides to help community programs in Danbury, Norwalk, Bridgeport, New Haven, and Stamford reach the under served youth in their cities. To learn more about the Alliance, please watch our video.
We look forward to seeing you on the Woodway courts in September. It will be great fun! Many thanks for your support.
Alex Seaver, Chairman Harlan Stone, President
