Naples, FL (March 28, 2016) - Fiddler’s Creek raised $9,000 during its second annual Bosom Buddies tennis exhibition and silent auction, more than doubling its contribution to the Naples charity from the inaugural event in 2015.
“Fiddler’s Creek is a compassionate and generous community,” said Aubrey Ferrao, president and CEO Fiddler’s Creek. “We’re pleased to make this contribution on our residents’ behalf to such a worthwhile organization,” continued Aubrey Ferrao.
Bosom Buddies provides physical, emotional and educational support for women with breast cancer and lymphedema.
The January 30 exhibition featured Scott Pennington and Desislav Borov, tennis pros at The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek, who competed against two local players and attracted so many attendees the staff had to expand the available spectator seating.
Silent auction items featured ballroom dancing lessons; tennis, wine and food-themed baskets; boating and fishing excursions; kayak ecoadventures; rounds of golf and more, which were donated by Fiddler’s Creek tennis league members, residents and local businesses.
“We are thankful for everyone who donated and bid,” said Ron Albeit, general manager of The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek. “It helped us double our contribution to Bosom Buddies in two years – and we hope we can double it again next year.”
Because of the success of the exhibition and silent auction, the Fiddler’s Creek community is recruiting a volunteer tennis committee to plan the 2017 event. “We are already planning for big things next year,” Albeit said.
