Letter: Fundraising for new tennis facility

Generous volunteers and donors are making a spectacular impact in bringing year-round tennis to the valley. The facility in El Jebel will include after-school programs and youth tennis events, and its indoor courts will enable mid-valley high schools to form girls’ and boys’ teams. Of course, the facility will also welcome adult play and tournaments.

The non-profit Advantage Indooor Tennis group already has raised about half the $1.1 million needed to build the facility. Crown Mountain Park District will provide operating funds, and no taxpayer money is involved or will be sought. Valley residents are invited to a fund-raiser, generously hosted by Portfolio Aspen Properties and sponsored by several local companies, to be held at the St. Regis Hotel in Aspen from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 30. Individual tickets will be $75, or two for $100, and can be purchased at the door or at http://www.IndoorTennisEvent.com. All donations are tax-deductible, and will help support a great cause.
