Bud Light Charity Challenge to Benefit ARC Gateway

September 5, 2006 02:20 PM

The Pensacola Sports Association, in partnership with longtime partner the Lewis Bear Company, is proud to present the second annual Bud Light Charity Challenge tennis tournament.  The Pensacola Racquet Club will host the event Sept. 15-17.

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event will support ARC Gateway, a local organization that provides services to more than 900 children and adults with developmental disabilities. The proceeds will assist ARC in constructing a KaBoom playground for children who receive services at the Pearl Nelson Child Development Center.

The weekend will consist of a tennis exhibition featuring ARC Gateway Special Olympic athletes, two-time NCAA Champions UWF, and celebration of the ARC Gateway KaBoom playground. The tournament will also feature unlimited Budweiser products, plenty of food, great music, big screen TVs showing professional and college football, and a silent auction.  The Draw Party begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, and the tennis tournament begins 8 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

Tennis players of any skill level are encouraged to participate; players will be grouped by ability level. Registration deadline is September 11.  For information about the tournament or sponsorship opportunities, contact Daniel Murphy at the Pensacola Sports Association, (850) 434-2800 or dmurphy@pensacolasports.com.  Brochures are available at area tennis centers, the Pensacola Sports Association office, and online: www.pensacolasports.com.
