Second Annual Paddle Tournament

On February 7th, two dozen women filled the paddle tennis courts at the beautiful Waccabuc Country Club for a morning of spirited play.  Between games, players gathered for conversation and refreshments around a roaring fire in the cozy Carriage House.

Thanks to the generosity of participants, and even some women who were unable to attend, we raised a whopping $2,160 for the Kakenya Center for Excellence!

Fundraising included a raffle, including generous donations of a massage from Irene Marks, L.M.T., at Healing Hands of Thyme at the Katonah Healing Arts Alliance and a tennis lesson from Richard Finn of the Saw Mill Club.

These funds will cover the annual tuition for six of our KEEP-supported eighth grade girls. Special thanks to tournament “master” and paddle pro Richard Finn, Waccabuc General Manager John Assuma, and our Waccabuc member sponsors. We couldn’t have done it without you!

As always, we wish a heartfelt thank you to all of our donors for your unflagging support and enthusiasm for educating girls!  The world is a better place because of your kindness.
