Every year the Whitewater High School Tennis Team hosts a JV Tournament to fundraise money for Gilda’s Club. This year’s tournament will be held on Saturday, August 17, from 9 am – 1 pm at the UW-Whitewater Tennis Courts and the Whitewater High School Tennis Courts.
Gilda’s Club is a nonprofit organization founded by Gene Wilder, in memory of his wife, Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer. This organization provides a place where cancer patients and their families are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
To help support this vital organization, the tennis team is selling concessions the day of the tournament, and Rocky Rococo’s has been generous enough to donate a portion of the profits they make on August 17 to the fundraiser. The team is also selling tickets for raffle baskets the day of the tournament as well as at the Whitewater High School football game on September 6 and the Whitewater High School soccer game on August 29.
Anyone can come and enjoy the tournament for free, but we hope that you support Gilda’s Club by purchasing concessions, raffle baskets, Rocky Rococo’s, or by donating directly. Thank you to everyone who has donated, and we hope to see you there!
