Magnolia Point Ladies Tennis Representing at the RITA Championships!

Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club’s ladies tennis team will be representing in a big way this weekend at the RITA Foundation Tennis Tournament! Our ladies tennis team will have six teams participating in the RITA Foundation Tournament. All matches will be played at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club. This is the largest charity tennis event in NE Florida! Proceeds benefit breast cancer research and breast cancer programs.

The 2016 RITA Championships:

Thursday, March 31 until Sunday April 3, 2016

Information from the RITA Foundation website:

RITA, Research Is The Answer, continues to fund local breast cancer research, education, awareness and patient programs. Special events, like the RITA Championships, generate our revenue. We then donate 100% of those net proceeds to several Jacksonville breast cancer programs. Since our beginning in 1997, over $2,800,000 has been donated.

RITA is the largest contributor to the Baptist Cancer Institute with over $750,000 donated.

Proceeds have helped purchase state of the art mammography equipment at Shands Jacksonville. Mayo Clinic has used RITA grants to fund basic cancer research program. Breast cancer survivors have been helped by grants to the Bosom Buddies support Group at the Women’s Center of Jacksonville.

The ‘Best Benefit of All’ is that all of us…you, The RITA Foundation, the local Breast Cancer programs … are making progress in finding a cure. Thank you for participating and helping RITA help all the women of Jacksonville.
