Southlake Tennis Center Hosts "Serve for Care" Benefit

Cancer Care Services

Continuing the momentum of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Southlake Tennis Center is hosting Serve for Care Tennis Benefit November 12-14 from 8:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. All proceeds benefit Cancer Care Services (CCS), a non-profit center in Fort Worth that provides financial and emotional support to cancer victims and their families. The funds will be designated for local women in Tarrant County who are being treated for breast cancer.  

According to Mia Gordon-Poorman, general manager for Southlake Tennis Center, CCS was selected because she wants to ensure the money stayed in the local community. CCS helped more than 600 breast cancer clients during 2012 by providing medication, transportation, nutritional supplements, and other forms of financial assistance.

"I can't imagine having to fight breast cancer while also worrying about how-to pay for medication, insurance and basic necessities," explains Gordon-Poorman, noting this is the fifth year Southlake Tennis Center has hosted a benefit to raise money for breast cancer. "We want to show our support for breast cancer in a big way and CCS will make sure the money gets to the women in our community who really need it. 

Serve for Care is a set partner doubles event with 3.5A/B players competing November 12; 4.0A/B players November 13; and 3.0 A/B players November 14. Each team will play in a round robin with the winners from each division playing in the finals. A light breakfast, snack and lunch will be provided each day. A silent auction, raffle and awards presentation will take place each day at 1:00 p.m.

Southlake Tennis CenterServe for Care is open to all qualified players. The cost to play is a $50 donation to CCS; registration deadline is November 1. Register at Southlake Tennis Center or US Tennis Association (tournament #800050113), or for more information, call 817-421-5605.
