Tennis benefit set for fabric supplies

A group of dedicated seamstresses and volunteers delivered another 1,000 colorful pillowcases to Rady Children’s Hospital on April 6, for a grand total of 2,000 pillowcases since Oct. 1, 2009.

Optimist Clubs of Southern California joined forces with ConKerr Cancer to bring a smile to children battling cancer and other life threatening illnesses. Volunteers from around San Diego, including church and quilting groups, the Assistance League of San Dieguito, fabric shops, Lomas Santa Fe Country Club members, and students from Clairemont High School, have donated their time and creativity to make a hospital stay as pleasant as possible.

Thanks to the groups’ efforts, handmade pillowcases have been delivered to The Ronald McDonald House, Kaiser Hospital, and the Veterans Hospital in La Jolla.

To raise funds for additional fabric, a Tennis Tournament will be held May 23 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach. Top athletes from UCSD will play members of the club. For more information, call Audrey Eller at (760) 510-9535 or e-mail ccc.optimist@gmail.com.
