30TH Annual MOrning Star school Tennis Classic

The 30th Anniversary of the Morning Star School Tennis Classic took place from May 5th through May 7th at Carrollwood Country Club in Tampa.  We had over 120 players at this year's Tennis Classic and wish to thank all of them for helping us celebrate our 30th year of this school fundraiser.

We also had many generous sponsors who made financial and/or in-kind donations which made this year's tennis classic a fun and successful charity event.  We thank the sponsors for their kindness.  In addition, the parent volunteers were tremendous;  they gave of their time and worked hard to make sure the tennis players had a nice time.  We also wish to thank Alan Williams, the Tennis Classic Tournament Director, Chris Cary, the Director of Tennis at Carrollwood Country Club, Todd Browne and all of the Carrollwood Country Club team for working so hard on this event.

Huge thanks to Century Bank of Florida and to John and Patricia Mulkerin, our Major Sponsors, who make this event possible. We are fortunate to have such a large community of individuals and businesses that support our mission within the community through their contributions to the annual Tennis Classic.  These individuals and companies are listed below:
