We would like to start by saying THANK YOU for supporting our organization through your participation in our Annual Tennis Benefit.
It is with great sadness that we inform you that we will not be hosting the Tennis Benefit in May 2017. The Southlake Tennis Center will be undergoing a beautiful expansion and much needed renovations and will not be able to safely and successfully host our event at their facility. Take a look at the plans for the renovation here. We had considered trying to find another venue but part of the success of the Tennis Benefit is the leadership and knowledge Stephen and Mia Poorman bring to the event, and with all that they will have going on we thought it best to postpone the event until May 2018.
HOWEVER, we still need your support in our mission to help end domestic violence and provide financial assistance to SafeHaven of Tarrant County. Mid-Cities SOS hosts two major fundraisers each year, Celebrity Chefs and the Tennis Benefit. Our organization donates over $125,000 to SafeHaven annually with proceeds raised by these events. On average, $25,000 is raised during the three-day Tennis Benefit through entry fees, sponsorships, basket raffle tickets and a silent auction.
We are asking you to help us replace the proceeds usually raised by the Tennis Benefit so that Mid-Cities SOS can continue its efforts to support the women and children at SafeHaven shelters.
THE WAY YOU CAN HELP
Make a donation! Any monetary amount will help but consider the following:
- $30 feeds a mother and her children 3 meals and 2 snacks at a SafeHaven shelter .
- $70 covers the cost for ONE child to stay in the shelter for ONE day.
Donations can be made securely online at www.Mid-CitiesSOS.org. Click on the DONATE button at the top.
Our goal is to raise at least $25,000 to make up for the deficit we face with having to cancel the Tennis Benefit. Please consider helping us in any way you can. We look forward to seeing you at the newly renovated Southlake Tennis Center in May 2018.
Join Us at our Spring Fling Wine Tasting event on May 24. More details can be found here.
Thank you in advance for your support.
