Swinging for the Cure – April 30th

April 15, 2011

Last year, I participated in the Carol Gollob “Swinging for the Cure” tennis clinic event and looking forward to their next event at the Midtown Tennis Club in Chicago on April 30th.

The Carol Gollob Foundation for Breast Cancer Research promotes awareness of breast cancer and funds research for its detection, prevention, and cure. Currently, over two million women in the United States have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Since 1992, they’ve raised over $550,000 for breast cancer research via their tennis events.
 
It was a very fun evening of tennis, food and meeting other tennis enthusiasts.    Players are divided into squads of eight according to skill level, and for two hours, are rotated through a series of drills and instruction led by 50 Chicago tennis professionals – prizes are awarded throughout the night.  I won a visor and a t-shirt for getting my serve to hit a cone – wish I could have such precision in a match!
 

Tennis was followed by a casual dinner, raffle and silent auction. Bid on specialized merchandise, state-of-the-art sports equipment, and more – including Smashing’s slimming tennis apparel.  Everyone who attends also receives a goodie bag – and who still doesn’t love a goodie bag?!?

Tickets are still available – so join me by signing up at this link: Swinging for The Cure

Have a Smashing Weekend!

PS  Today we have a Where’s Waldo picture.  Of course I was playing tennis all evening, but the only picture I could find of me at last years event was during the pilates warm-up  (optional).
