$55K for Children's Village!
Scarsdale, NY
$55K for Children's Village!written by: Ward Doonan

$55K for Children's Village!Sally Rogers was finally able to help us from above - the sun was shining on the courts for our 2016 “The Sally” platform tennis charity event after years of rain! We had a strong draw of 32 teams playing primarily at our host club, Fox Meadow Tennis Club as well as 4 surrounding facilities. The Sally has been held at Fox Meadow Tennis Club in Scarsdale, New York, for over 35 years. It is a competitive, yet friendly, women’s paddle and silent auction event for intermediate to advanced players

We are proud to be the largest paddle charity in the country, raising over $55,000 this year thanks to the participants, the silent auction and our very generous sponsors. Proceeds from “The Sally” support the Children’s Village Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for Westchester County (NY) teens who are homeless or have run away, often from unsafe or abusive homes. They come to the shelter voluntarily, often after spending weeks or months on the street. Each year, more than 200 at-risk teens come to the shelter lonely and scared and leave knowing there is a safe place to go and a plan for success. We greatly appreciate the wonderful support we have from our participants, many who travel from other states to join us and support the event.

Abigail Burke returned to the event with a new partner, Jill Klaffky. They endured a long and tough path to the finals which they won over Cecilia Bowers and Jane Foster 6-1, 6-3. Click for information about Children’s Village, The Sally and details on the draw
