Haiti Relief Tennis Fundraiser at BallenIsles in Florida

January 13, 2010 06:00 PM
The BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., will host a Haiti Relief Tennis Fundraiser on Saturday morning, Jan. 16, 2010, from 10-11 a.m.

Find a solid partner, bring your "A"-game and, most importantly, bring a minimum of $20 (cash/check) for Haiti Relief and play one game against the "Lima-Amsterdam" team of pros Ricardo Mendivil and Hans Romer.

"We have all seen the terrible tragedy which is taking place in Haiti these past 48 hours," Romer said. "Tennis Professional Ricardo Mendivil and I have organized a spontaneous fundraiser, and we look forward to seeing people on the court."

Teams that can post a win over Ricardo and Hans will win $20 from the "Lima-Amsterdam" team, payable toward the Haiti relief fund. Losing teams will be asked to contribute a minimum of $20 toward the fund.

The American Red Cross is estimating between 50,000-100,000 are dead from Tuesday's 7.0 magnitude earthquake that has turned much of the country to rubble, and sparked an international response.
