Rides and Racquets! Two Events=One Purpose at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC
The 9th Annual Verbena Purim Carnival and the 17th Annual Tennis Fest Pro-Am will both take place at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC located on the Sanford L. Ziff Campus, 18900 NE 25th Avenue, North Miami Beach, on Sunday, March 20, 2011.
Taking place this same weekend is the 17th Annual Tennis Fest that will begin on Saturday evening, March 19, at 8pm at Hollywood Vine, in Hollywood, FL, with a wine tasting party that includes great food, exclusive auction items, and a raffle. To participate in the Pro-Am Tournament on Sunday, March 20, there is a $650 fee, however, players may purchase raffle tickets the night of the party, subsequently entering their name into a drawing. The more tickets they purchase, the more times their name is entered into the drawing, enabling them to choose from a line-up tennis professionals such as Maurice Ruah, Oliver Salous, Jeff Mager, Chris Kwon, Anthony Emerson, Michael Ray, and many others! “Once again this year, the caliber of players we have assembled is as high as that of an ATP Tournament,”
Proceeds from these two events, which are both open to the public, will benefit the MAR-JCC Scholarship Fund. This fund enables under privileged children and families to take advantage of the after-school programs, summer camp, and Infant Daycare & Pre-school at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center.“ For more information about the Verbena Purim Carnival, call Diani Azout at 305-932-4200 x119.
