2015 Shanghai SRC Tennis Charity Tournament

“Shanghai SRC Tennis Charity Tournament” was held at the Shanghai Racquet Club from Oct 30th to Nov 1st, in aid of You Dao Foundation to support migrant families. Eighty-five competitors in 20 teams joined the tournament – in Davis Cup format – thanks to the broad support of the club for You Dao’s work.
The event started with the Tennis Exhibit Dinner which was supported by about 40 members. Participants were able to watch the matches played by the coaches while dining in an open ground at the center court. The atmosphere was very joyful. You Dao director, Mr Warren Kinne joined the dinner and spoke about You Dao’s mission - A way to walk and grow with migrant workers and their families.
The tournament events started on the weekends, and all participating members were excited and happy to compete for a good cause. At the same time, the club organised a charity bazaar for other members to join and share the fun – with face painting, manicures, and side matches.
At the awards dinner, live auction for carpets and hotel coupons, raffle draws became the spotlight of the night. Chairman of You Dao, Mr Compton Tothill expressed his gratitude for the support of all.
Funds donated to You Dao from the event set a record, and just as importantly, even more members and guests signed up to become You Dao volunteers, or to support us in other ways.
