The Mason Tennis Association Tennis-A-Thon fundraiser was a smashing success in raising over $9500. The money will be used to improve our tennis center.
Many of our tennis playing youth, ages 3 to 18, played tennis for 1 and 1/2 hours on March 24th and acquired sponsors who donated money to them for playing.
The top fundraiser for this event was Lexie Bingham, a 7th grader, who raised $1500. Wow! Lexie is a repeat winner, so has graciously offered to give her 1st place prize tennis bag to one of her teammates! 2nd place fundraiser was pre-schooler, Kolton Smith, who raised $859. Super! Third place fundraiser was 5th grader, Madelyn Heath who brought in $535. Yippee! These two winners received tennis backpacks for their effort. Coming in at 4th place with $405 was junior, Claudia Canfield and Corbin Norris was our 5th place fundraiser with $380. What a great job these players have done!
The M.T.A. would like to thank our underwriters for the 2013 Tennis-A-Thon. Donating at the $500 gold level was the Mason Bank, Yokohama/Dipsticks Tire and Lube, and Star S Ranch. Donating at the $250 silver level was The Commercial Bank, First State Bank, and Ahlschwede & Spaeth. Citizens Insurance donated at the $100 bronze level. Without their generous help, our Tennis-A-Thon would not have been such a success.
Special thanks go to Dr Pepper Bottling and BCS Trophies who donated prizes for the court winners on the day of the event.
The M.T.A. would like to thank all of those tennis players and parents who worked so diligently in obtaining sponsors and all of you who were so gracious to donate to them. The support you showed was just wonderful.
