The Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club held its annual member/guest event on Sept. 21. This year they had a special purpose: To raise awareness regarding breast cancer, as well as raising money to help the uninsured women in San Diego through their difficult journey. The Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club Rally for the Cure member/guest event started early in the morning, with a light breakfast and silent auction, followed by fun tennis enjoyed by all. Lunch followed play, with the winners being announced for each division, as well as best dressed and most spirited.
The women were also asked to take the $125 Challenge (the cost of a digital mammogram). Rally for the Cure was a huge success, and the planning committee is already thinking of next year.
Lili Myers spoke at the event, reminding all members and their guests that breast cancer is not something that only happens to somebody else. It can happen to any of us. Myers was also very touched by the huge effort and the work involved in making this event possible. Aside from thanking the Tennis Club board, Lili Myers specifically thanked the women and man that worked so hard making this event a reality: Perrin Zamarripa, Barbara McClanahan, Barbara Groth, Cindy Leonard, Anna Waite, and the tennis Pros, Derek Miller, Allie Denike and Dophie Poiset, and, of course, Laura Farmer Sherman, executive director of Komen San Diego. most photos/McKenzie Images
