USA Tennis Florida Donates to American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund

September 17, 2004 09:42 AM
USA Tennis Florida, on behalf of its 44,000 USTA members in Florida, is making a $5,000.00 contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. In addition to our donation of $5000, we are proud to announce that the Tampa Women's 4.5 team will be donating back to USA Tennis Florida a total of $750.00 to be donated to the Red Cross for Hurricane relief. The team had received a $1,000.00 grant to assist with their travel expenses to the USA League Tennis presented by Lincoln National Championships.  As all Floridians know our state has been severely impacted by Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. The American Red Cross has sheltered 415,589 Florida residents in 1,733 shelters throughout the state.  Over 2,657 volunteers and staff have worked to provide over 10 million meals and snacks during these difficult times.

We are urging USTA members and tennis enthusiasts in Florida to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund whose resources have been severely depleted due to these catastrophic storms.
