While guest bartending events filled the the BBC Tavern and Grill calendar last week, Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring Association still managed to attract dozens of supporters and friends of tennis, who raised a glass in the spirit of academic and athletic success.
Wilmington resident Sue Ann Kane spearheaded the March 2nd RSTTA guest bartending fundraiser, rounding up 18 volunteers to serve as bartenders and coordinating a bountiful wine basket raffle, which Tower Hill Admissions Director Kristin Mumford proudly took home! The effort of the many bartenders and other volunteers helped raise more than $6,000 for RSTTA, whose mission is to foster a lifelong love of tennis and learning with a focus on reaching underserved children and youth.
Guest bartenders included Ann Ahl, Tracy Crowley, Jeremiah DeJose, Joe Diana, Debi Diver, Michael Fleming, Tim Fitzgerald, Jeff Harrison, Julie MacWilliams, Diana Maund, Kristin Mumford, Gina Pike, Andrea Roesser, Erin Rubano, Darren Schwandt, Beth Singewald, Jill Wallace, Christine Watson, and Rob Wirth.
Next up: The RSTTA Spring Benefit on Friday, May 5th at the Vicmead Hunt Club. The Spring Benefit is open to the public and General Admission tickets are $100. Tickets will go on sale soon through their website: http://www.rodneystreettennis.org.
