WTEF Congressional Charity Tennis Tournament a Huge Success

On Monday, September 8th, WTEF hosted its annual Congressional Charity Tennis Tournament at WTEF's East Capitol Campus. 

Chaired by Rep. Ed Whitfield, the event brought together Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, corporate CEO’s and professional tennis legends to support WTEF’s award-winning afterschool programs for children and youth.  The tournament featured Congressional members:  Jared Huffman, Charlie Dent, Joyce Beatty, Kevin Yoder and representatives of the offices of Ed Royce and Sheila Jackson Lee.  We are also very thankful to our contingent of Tennis Legends who come out every year to participate in the CCTT:  Kathy Rinaldi, Zina Garrison, Chanda Rubin, Richey Renneberg, Lori McNeil, Danny Waldman and rising star, Taylor Townsend.


Under somewhat ominous skies (but only a few raindrops), participants joined together for an afternoon of spirited tennis competition (not too much trash talking) and some impressive shot-making.  Congratulations to our winners:  Rep. Kevin Yoder, Diane O’Toole, Rich Robinson and Habib Debs, and runners-up:  Rep. Charlie Dent, Tom Kuhn, Chris Gill and De’Ana Dow!
