Guns and Hoses Charity Tennis Tournament
By: Bob Lopez, Truck 9
Hey, tennis fans! It is time for our 2nd Annual Guns and Hoses Charity Tennis Tournament. It will be held on May 17th, 2003. As last year, this endeavor should prove to be a fun-filled day of tennis, food, drinks, friends, and lots of wonderful prizes.

This tournament is a benefit for two very worthwhile charities, “Wish upon a Star” (S.F.P.D.) and the “Survivors Family Fund” (S.F.F.D.). Last year we were able to raise $7,000.00, and we hope to be able to exceed that amount this year. Last year’s silent auction items and raffle prizes included hotel stays, dinner certificates, Giant’s and 49er’s tickets, sports memorabilia, wine, tennis racquets, and much, much more.

The tournament will be hosted by the San Francisco Tennis Club, Local 798 and the SFPOA. A special thanks to all of them for their continued contribution to these worthy causes.

Your $100.00 donation not only includes the entry fee, dinner and drinks but also the San Francisco Tennis Club will completely waive the initiation fee for membership! ($1500.00!!). If you would like to join us as an observer or fan, a $25.00 donation will entitle you to dinner, refreshments and great entertainment.

So, come join us for a good time of tennis and friendship, as we continue this fun, but competitive, tradition between the S.F.F.D. and the S.F.P.D.

Prizes, donations, and/or contributions are graciously accepted for our auction and raffle. If you would like to participate, donate items, or would like an application for the tournament, you may call any of the following individuals.
