While some were lunching at fundraising events on Friday, November 15, others were taking full advantage of the beautiful weather to raise money for The Elisa Project. This report from the field tells the story:
“The Elisa Project held its second annual tennis tournament – TEP Open — at the Dallas Country Club. Charlotte Alston Legg and Terri McCullough served as co-chairs for the event with The Elisa Project Co-Founders Leslie and Rick McCall as honorary co-chairs.
“Twenty-six teams of two played in the round robin and 105 tournament and raised over $10,000 for the charity. Thanks to sponsors (Audi Dallas, Dallas Country Club, Elizabeth Showers, Cabanalife, JM Albert Photography, Skin Technology, The Scout Guide, Innergy, Spoon bar & kitchen, T Bar M Racquet Club, Royal Oaks Country Club, McCullough Mediation, Sunkissed Girl, Woodhill Dental Specialties, Vickie Brown Tenniswear and several local families), the entire event was underwritten.
“Local tennis phenom Peggy Porter also joined in by playing with the pros. The day included a ProAm and lunch on the terrace.
“Executive Director, Kim Martinez said that success of the tournament was due to the hard work of Charlotte and Terri in addition to the support of all sponsors, the Dallas Country Club and their pro staff.
“The purpose of the event was to raise mission-critical funds for The Elisa Project that will be used to provide school-age and community education and prevention programs throughout North Texas, as well as resource and referral services to help patients and families struggling with eating disorders find treatment and support.”
