The Ernest DeBakey Charitable Foundation

Team Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament

March 25-26, 2011

We are very excited to embark on our fifth year of the Kerri Castello Tennis Tournament.  This tournament is a fundraiser for the Kerri Castello Cancer Research Foundation which benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.  Over the last four years we have had the pleasure of sending almost $400,000 to the hospital through this tournament.

This year we are honored to welcome Mr. Rick Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC- the fundraising leg of St. Jude.  This comes at a wonderful time of our fifth year and after receiving the honor of “Best Charity Event” given by the United States Tennis Association of Alabama.  Both of these events show the hard work the committee has dedicated themselves to in making this one of the premier charity tournaments around.

All proceeds will benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

St. Jude’s was ranked as the Best Childrens Hospital By Specialty for Cancer in Parents Magazine. Please see the article online.
