Lawn Chair Tennis Fundraiser Aces It Raising $16,500.
Girls with Grit would like to thank everyone who attended their 1st Annual Lawn Chair Tennis Fundraiser. The event took place at the beautiful Lost Creek Country Club on November 16, 2018 and was well attended by more than 70 guests. Everyone enjoyed a delicious tail-gate themed dinner, signature cocktails provided by Black Eye Distilling Co. and a lovely selection of wines and beer before hitting the courts for several matches of Lawn Chair Tennis.
Co-founders, Audrey and Deborah Pfluger, presented information about the problem of sex trafficking and exploitation of teens in the Austin area explaining why funds are needed to support their prevention programs. Girls with Grit has educated more than 250 teens in the Austin area this year. Funding is needed to train more facilitators and reach even more kids in 2019. All proceeds from the fundraiser are allocated to sex trafficking prevention programs.
Many thanks to Pfluger Architects, Lori Grubs, Brad and Deborah Pfluger, Lost Creek Country Club, Endeavor Real Estate, Square One Consultants, SAP, Eckert Insurance and Venturi Wealth Management for sponsoring this event. And to the following great companies who donated items for the silent auction: Alamo Draft House, Archer Hotel, Austin Boulder Project, Austin Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, Black Swan Yoga, Edna Rose, Embellish, Food & Wine Alliance, Hat Creek Burger, Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Kendra Scott, Lost Creek Country Club, Mixtli Restaurant, Moonshine Grill, Paris in a Bit, Texas Honey Ham, The Escape Room, Tito’s Vodka, Top Golf, and Twin Liquors.
We hope to see you next year at the 2nd Annual Lawn Chair Tennis Fundraiser which will be held next fall. No need to start practicing. Lawn Chair Tennis is a blast but requires zero skills to play.
