Letter From AAACTA's President
Hit For Haiti Raises Over $4000
It's funny how we make mental connections between seemingly disparate
events. Consider this recent seismic event in Haiti.
Yes, it was
horrific, in terms of death, injury, and property
the people of Haiti, already desperately poor,
could ill afford the
additional burden. Regardless of how we may
feel about the
administration of that island nation, we seek to help.
the goal of AAACTA's benefit on January 30th. Many of you attended - and
have my gratitude for it. In the course of a fun-filled evening of
tennis at the generously-provided UM Varsity Tennis Center, some 50
players and 8 tennis professionals enjoyed 4 hours of matches, drills,
and other fun. We raised, for the worthy Haiti Nursing Foundation, over $4000.
AAACTA thanks our
community for your generosity of spirit and energy - both of which were
on glorious display the night of January 30th. I walked away feeling
that I'd not only had a good evening's tennis but that, at less than
fifteen dollars an hour, I'd just been tricked into a solid tennis
value. There are many to thank for that and we acknowledge and thank
them in this issue of the AAACTA newsletter.
See you out there on the courts,
Patrick J. Lee
