2017 Big For A Day at STEC!
Saturday, March 25, 28 prospective Big and Little Sisters came to Sportsmen’s for a wonderful tennis clinic, thanks to a creative partnership between Sportsmen’s and the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston.
The Big Sister Association did its job, screening candidates, matching personalities, and getting everyone to our site.
What a Match!
Sportsmen’s coaches, staff, volunteers, parents and juniors did our part, by making it fun and educational, even for those who’d never touched a racket.
Many of you did your part, sending donations from all over the country to help offset our expenses. We can’t thank you enough for making THIS possible!
It’s not too late help underwrite last night’s event, or to help make a kid’s summer spectacular! Thank you to those of you who already donated to help us cover most of our costs for last night’s event. We were thrilled that so many women and girls took flyers describing Sportsmen’s free programs, and our upcoming April and Summer Camps.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!
