The USTA Eastern Long Island and Long Beach Tennis Center (LBTC) are joining forces to help save lives. The two organizations will host a three-hour Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and CPR Training session on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011 from 6:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m. Participants will receive their two-year CPR certification upon completion of the program. The training session is made possible by Forever 9-The Robbie Levine Foundation. This hands-on training session is open to the public.
The program will take place at LBTC, 899 Monroe Blvd, Long Beach, New York. For more information or to register, please call Lori at (516)432-6060 or visit www.ustaonlongisland.com.
The suggested donation of $10 per person will be given to Forever 9 to support its efforts at donating AEDs to youth sports programs. The Robbie Levine Foundation (www.robbielevinefoundation.org) works to increase awareness of the need for and importance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in saving lives, particularly in youth athletics, and to advance Robbie's love of sports and giving nature by supporting youth sports programs.
In conjunction with the training session, Long Beach Tennis Center will be raffling off a Keurig Single Cup Coffee Machine, with proceeds to benefit the non-profit organization Cure Mommy’s Breast Cancer. Each raffle ticket is $5 and can be purchased in advance. The drawing will take place on Sunday, December 11 at the USTA Eastern AED/CPR training at LBTC. The winner does not need to be present. A free raffle ticket will be given to each person attending the AED/CPR training.
