The Sally
10-29-2008
The Sally

Scarsdale, NY
The Fox Meadow Tennis Club was again the host site for The Sally, a tournament to benefit The Children's Village. It was a beautiful fall day, and Sharon Saunders and crew made sure that the 45 teams entered had a full day of play combined with lunch and an opportunity to shop. Congratulations to repeat champs Cynthia Dardis and Amy Shay, who defeated Nancy Harwood and Lisa Reach in the finals. Read more about The Sally and view photos here.



 

The SallySince 1851, the mission of the Children's Village has been to work in partnership with families to help society's most vulnerable children so that they become educationally proficient, economically productive, and socially responsible members of their communities.

Sharon relied on Bob Brown to "man the boards" for the tournament, and the "kitchen crew" was kept busy making sure there was a continuing buffet throughout the day.

To ensure that all teams had plenty of court time, the back draws were divided into 5 separate draws. The 64 Consolation saw the mother-daughter team of Mary Sturgis and Christine Reiss defeat Liz Corsini and Susan Del Rio in the final. The 64 Conso Reprieve winners were Beydoun-Rosen.

The 32 Consolation finalists were Kerry Bascio-Shauna Muller and Jeryl Malloy-Mary Stanton (results unknown at "press time"). 32 Conso Reprieve winners were Aisenman-Birritella. Debbie Ginn & Kathy Holskin drove up from Philly to defeat "The Ruths" (Andrews & Weil) in the Round of 16 Consolation.

While the on court activity is important, the silent auction and raffles are an integral part of the day. With so many items to choose from, it was hard for shoppers to decide what to bid on, and several went home with more than one "prize".

Entry fees, raffles, silent auctions and donations netted approximately $30,000 for the cause.

Sharon expressed her thanks to all who contributed their time, money and auction/raffle items to make The Sally a success once again.
