Wounded Warrior Charity Event in Fullerton
When an injured soldier returns from war, who is there to help? The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization founded in Roanoke, Virginia by a group of veterans and friends to who took action to help service men and women hurt on or after September 11, 2001.
The National Final’s move from Houston to Fullerton, California offered the perfect chance to start a new charity event as part of Ektelon Nationals presented by Penn. With a Military Division included in the event, organizers decided the Wounded Warrior Project to be the perfect fit.
You can support a great cause and join the fun by playing with one of the top players on the tour. Those participating in the charity event will not have matches scheduled on Wednesday night to avoid a conflict. Can’t make it? A junior can play in your place, so you can support the WWP as well as a young person in the sport. Space is limited to only twenty-four amateurs who will have the opportunity to play in a single elimination (one game to fifteen) doubles challenge with a top professional pro as their partner. Each player will receive an autographed gift from their pro partner. Call Heather at (719) 499-3252 to make your $200 donation, with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project.
