2017 HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Shootout

      Comments Off on 2017 HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Shootout

Racquetballers,

Our 9th annual HOPE for a Cure event is on the books!! 

This event serves a helping hand to so many who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and need a helping hand with his/her financial obligations.  Additionally, we send funds to local foundations who provide education, and further assistance to those in need.  Could you ask for anything better? 

Because of the HOPE’s growing popularity, we have extended the women’s only shootout from one day to a full weekend!  Our racquetball community has come in strong each and every year, and this one won’t be different. 

Saying this, we couldn’t host this event without donations.  They can come in the form of products (bottles of water, snacks, catered food, etc.), raffle items and/or monetary contributions. 

Please read the attached donation letter, and please consider being a vital contributor this year’s event!!  You can assist by sharing it with your friends, company, business partners, church members, or anyone else you come across.  There is simply no donation that is too small. 

I thank you in advance!
Tara
