Save the date for the 10th annual Madisen’s Match celebrity tennis experience to benefit pediatric and adult cancer patients in Southwest Florida and beyond, March 18-19, 2018. Sponsorship opportunities are now available for this biggest-ever event, which will feature the No. 14-ranked player in the world and 2017 Wimbledon Semi-Finalist, Sam Querrey, 16-time Grand Slam winners Bob and Mike Bryan and former U.S. No. 1 men’s player Mardy Fish. Exciting new venues for all Madisen’s Match events also promise to set a new standard for charity sporting events in Southwest Florida.
To kick off the festivities, Olympic Gold Medalists Bob and Mike Bryan exchange their tennis rackets for some 12-bar rock and roll as headliners for the 10th Anniversary Gala Celebration and Auction. Join the Bryan Brothers Band at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club starting at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 18 where guests will enjoy a Grand Slam-themed gala and auction. That beautiful venue will also be home of the Madisen Match’s Legends Tennis Camp at 8:45 a.m. on Monday, March 19 followed by the Tennis Pro-Am at 1 p.m.
The grand finale of the two-day fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. Monday, March 19 when the Golisano Children’s Hospital Pro Tennis Classic becomes Southwest Florida’s first indoor tennis event. A special indoor court will be installed at Suncoast Credit Union Arena on the Fort Myers campus of Florida SouthWestern State College, which will allow this much-anticipated event to continue its significant growth.
Madisen’s Match founder Duane Chaney said, “The caliber of our tennis pros, venues and the Southwest Florida community ensures another outstanding success for our 10th year. We’re confident we’ll continue to grow Madisen’s Match, making fun lifetime memories for all involved that in turn help to secure better outcomes for brain tumor patients for decades to come.”
The 9th Annual Madisen’s Match in March 2017 raised nearly $150,000 for brain tumor-related care and research programs in Southwest Florida. Tickets will go on sale Dec. 1. Sponsorship information is available at www.madisensmatch.com.
