Club Fit Hosts Successful Tennis Fundraiser for My Sisters’ Place

Another Successful Charity Fundraiser hosted by Club Fit

Thanks to Club Fit member Lisa Olney for once again organizing a successful tennis fundraiser at Club Fit Briarcliff to benefit My Sisters’ Place. The 3rd Annual Eat, Play, Love on Saturday, July 27th was a huge success. Along with the generosity of an anonymous matching donor, participants raised $10,955 for this deserving local cause.

Lisa, who is also board member of My Sisters’ Place, tells us partnering with Club Fit was crucial to making Eat, Play, Love a success again this year. “Club Fit has always been a leader in supporting philanthropic initiatives in the community and goes out of its way to support its members and the organizations they support,” says Olney. “It’s like a big family at Club Fit, with a built-in support network.”

“I want to send shout outs for how wonderful Rodrigo and Scott were. They were HUGE in making this event a success, and I couldn’t appreciate them more. Rodrigo was great at running the tennis portion, making sure everyone was having fun and knew the format, and in helping with whatever needed to be done in the non-tennis portion as well from start to finish. Having Club Fit cater my event is the best decision I’ve ever made with this fundraiser. Scott’s calm demeanor and natural leadership made it a great event — it made it easy and calm for me, and from the perspective of the participants, it really elevated the event. Scott had Destiny helping at the event, and she couldn’t have been any more wonderful. Everyone loved her, and she was awesome.”

Lisa continues, “Scott put together a to go dinner for me, because as often happens when you’re the host/hostess, I never got a chance to eat. People were raving about the food. From the salmon to the pulled pork from the veggies to the quinoa (and let’s not forget the pre-dinner fare) — EVERYTHING was sooooo good!”

The event drew tennis players and supporters for a relaxing night of fun, tennis and an array of raffle prizes. Food was generously donated by the Olney Family. Chilmark Wines & Liquors and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company provided the wine, Prosecco and beer, adding to the evening’s festivities.

Since 1976, My Sisters’ Place has worked to end violence in intimate relationships and combat the effects of domestic violence and human trafficking on women, men, and children throughout Westchester County. My Sisters’ Place’s mission is to engage each member of society in their work to end domestic violence and humantrafficking, so that all relationships can embrace the principles of respect, equality and peacefulness.
