On Monday, Aug. 3, Wildwood Pool and Tennis Club hosted more than 40 ladies at the 3rd annual Play for Pink Tennis Tournament and Games Day.
Not withstanding the inclement weather, Wildwood‘s Play for Pink Tennis Tournament and Games Day was once again a smashing success.
Over $4,000 was raised by generous participants and donors. In addition, tennis pro Russell Heier and his wife Theresa donated their time and energy to run this terrific event. Member Steven Menist, owner of Bagel Hut, donated the breakfast and Maureen Radcliff, the manager of Wildwood, presented a wonderful lunch for all the participants. Bloomberg, Estee Lauder and Wilson provided goody bags for all.
Play for Pink donates 100 percent of the funds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Since 1990 Play for Pink has raised in excess of $15.75 million dollars.
This year’s tennis champions were Suzanne Corbin, Jill Krieger and Andrea Newmark. An honorable mention was given to Amanda Gilad for her efforts. The mah-jongg winner of the day was Joyce Graber.
