The 2019 HOPE for a CURE Cancer Shootout is on the books! We are moving into our 11th HOPE event; for which SO many have been helped by our donated dollars! I cannot wait to continue our dedication to the cause.
Our event will be held Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Recreation Atlanta, Lilburn, Georgia. We will have our Fun Mixed Doubles on the Friday night before where we’ve gotten to enjoy the random-picked teams fighting for the gold. It is one of my favorite parts of the event itself.
As in year’s past, each dollar we raise at the HOPE goes to help those who need us. We traditionally have helped those fighting breast cancer, but we’ve changed this by helping those fighting ANY type of cancer… more and more people are needing our helping hands; and we will not say NO! Please come and be a part of this. Whether you are a female player who wants to join the fun, a male player who wants to volunteer to help us run the day, and/or a donor/sponsor who will help us make this happen.
I’ve attached the donation letter to those who are willing to assist. Remember, nothing is too small!!
I appreciate everyone who has taken part in the past, and hopeful that you will continue to do so in 2019!!
See you on the court,

The 2019 HOPE for a Cure Cancer Shootout is in the books!! We are officially planning our 11th annual event at Recreation Atlanta on Saturday, October 19th!
Did you notice the name change?
For the last 10 years, we have been named HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Shootout. Our funds have helped SO many who have been diagnosed with this terrible disease. However, we have SO many who are affected by ‘cancer’ of many types. This can’t be ignored. Therefore, in our 11th year, we are stepping up and celebrating our fighters of ‘cancer,’ helping those who need us, donating for further research of this terrible disease, and standing in honor of those who we’ve lost!!
We get to do all of this while playing the sport we love!!
Many of you have taken part by playing, volunteering, and/or donating; I hope this year will not be different. We need all hands on deck to continue to make a difference.
See you on the courts!!
