BOCA RATON, Fla. - This year's premiere event, The Chris Evert - Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic returns to the Delray Beach Tennis Center and The Boca Raton Resort & Club November 3rd through November 5th!
Each year, well-known personalities come out for fun, fast-paced, competitive matches to raise money to help at-risk families throughout Florida.
Last year, the 2016 Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic raised an amazing $700,000 dollars. Since 1989, Chris Evert's efforts have contributed over $23.25 million in an ongoing campaign against drug abuse and child neglect in Florida. With the help of loyal and generous sponsors, participating celebrities, legions of volunteers and a dedicated staff, Chris Evert continues to raise money to fund programs that ensure a bright future for at-risk children and their families.
"While tennis has been my profession, helping needy children has been my passion. For almost a decade it has been my pleasure to work in partnership with The Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida to help hundreds of substance-abusing moms get the help they need to give their children a good start in life,"
said Chris Evert.
