Playing for Pediatrics a Smashing Success
Volunteer group "serves up" inaugural fundraising event at Doylestown Tennis Club to benefit pediatric care at Doylestown Hospital.
More than 100 tennis enthusiasts from the area laced up their tennis shoes and gathered at the Doylestown Tennis Club On Saturday, February 28 to participate in "Playing for Pediatrics". This first-time fundraiser benefited The Carol & Louis Della Penna Pediatric Center of Doylestown Hospital and featured a round-robin style tennis tournament, great food and drink, and lots of fun throughout the evening.
The Pediatric Center’s Community Committee organized the event, and has helped plan other fundraisers on behalf of the center. We would like to offer special thanks to the lead organizers, KC DelPlato, Lisa Kuhnle and Amy Price, as well as the event’s "Full-Court" sponsors, Fred Beans, Centric Alloys, Inc. and Bucks County Bank, for their leadership and support. The event exceeded its goal and raised over $18,000 for Doylestown Hospital.
"We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of this event," said DelPlato. "The community as a whole is very excited about the expansion of pediatric care services at Doylestown Hospital, and this event will help to sustain and grow the new pediatric unit moving forward."
The Della Penna Pediatric Center opened in October and features private rooms, accommodations for family members and an experienced pediatric staff available 24/7.
Playing for Pediatrics participants enjoyed the friendly nature of the competition and the community cause at the core of the event. The winners of the "King of the Court" and "Queen of the Court" tournaments were Chris DelPlato and Nina Drinnan.
Many thanks to all of our sponsors!
