Linda's Legacy, A Tournament of Love

August 12, 2008 02:07 PM

Linda's Legacy™, A Tournament of Love, in it's first year became the largest charity event of it's kind in the state of Florida.  This four-day women’s doubles tennis tournament and celebrity pro am will be held again this year September 25th - 28th.

The event will kick off on a Thursday evening at the spectacular TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The evening, open to sponsors and their guests, players, and the public for a nominal cost, will include beverages and heavy hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, silent and live auctions, raffles and team pairings. Play begins on Friday at the beautiful ATP Tennis Facility in Ponte Vedra Beach and concludes on Sunday with the finals for each bracket.

Tracy Austin will be returning this year as our honorary Chair of the event and will be our featured guest in the celebrity pro-am exhibition which will be held on Saturday evening.  Tracy will be joined by many of her tennis alumni as well as other local and national celebrities to be announced soon.  We hope you can join us for what is sure to be another memorable event.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Linda's Legacy Foundation whose goal is to raise funds for use in elevating lung cancer awareness, particularly among women, as well as educate about its devastating and often fatal effects. The Foundation also raises funds to support lung cancer clinical trials and assist victims of lung cancer and their families with special needs. All funds raised by the Foundation stay in northeast Florida to directly benefit those in our area needing assistance.
