On Wednesday, May 6, the United States Tennis Association/Long Island Region board will host its 19th Annual Awards Dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club, located at 8325 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury, N.Y. It will be the largest and most prestigious tennis gathering held on Long Island to honor the outstanding achievements of local tennis enthusiasts. This special evening brings together tennis communities from across the Island to pay tribute to the accomplishment of fellow players.
The festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail hour, live music and dinner, during which time, junior and adult players, coaches, clubs, programs, volunteers and individuals will be recognized who demonstrated the very best in skills, sportsmanship, and dedication to the sport of tennis in 2008. Besides a feast that only the Crest Hollow Country Club can prepare, other highlights of the night will include a variety of raffles and an auction of tennis memorabilia. There will also be a surprise offering that is surely a part of every tennis buff’s dream.
Please join the USTA/LI Region for this extraordinary fundraiser. Remember, 100 percent of the revenue from this event is fed right back into the tennis community in the form of grants, scholarships, and other worthwhile programs and events. Make sure to mark Wednesday, May 6 on your calendar and help make the USAT/LI Region 19th Annual Awards Dinner a great success. Last year, approximately 250 people were in attendance … and this year, USTA/LI is looking to set a new attendance record.
