Joining forces with Joy of Life

Dear Sponsors,

This letter is in regards to an exciting opportunity that I am asking for you to consider.  As you know, our event has not taken place over the last year.  The reason for this, Sergio, my husband and I have made a move to Charlotte, NC area.  This is an exciting move for us, but it has been very time consuming for me, therefore I have been unable to plan the tournament.

What I would like you to consider is an event that is also a fundraiser for St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, TN.  This local event is the Joy of Life Mardi Gras Ball ( ).   It takes place Saturday, February 11, 2017, at Ft. Whiting, Mobile, Alabama.  I am attaching a letter of basic information about the event.

If you would like to donate through KCCRF, we will make sure your donation goes to support this event and St. Jude.  The foundation will be buying tables for the event and if you would like to attend and sit with us, please let me know this is your intention.  Individual tickets for a seat at our table would be $100 each or 2 for $150 I will send your ticket and information to you directly.  Or you can buy a table for 10 @$700 I will make sure you have your own table and work directly with Joy of Life to make this happen if you prefer going through KCCRF.

If you can not attend but would like to continue your support through KCCRF, we greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for all your continued support in raising money for cancer research.  I continue to be amazed at the generosity in memory of Kerri.  My hope is to continue the tennis tournament in the area, as I am currently working on making that happen.  Until then, if you would consider continuing your donations, this is a great way to make that happen.

Please contact me if you have any questions.  If you are sending through us, make sure all checks are made out to KCCRF

Please send donations to the address below, or contact me for further information.
