Become a Sponsor

All proceeds raised will be used to purchase tennis shoes for local kids in need! 

The average cost for a pair of tennis shoes was just over $30.00 per pair last year, and we are expecting that cost to increase due to inflation. Every donation and sponsorship help support the purchase of new tennis shoes and socks for local kids in need. Please consider becoming a sponsor of this essential event that has significant impact on the communities involved.
