R.H. Foster Team Wins Seacoast Mission’s Benefit Tennis Tournament
BAR HARBOR, ME — Congratulations to the R.H. Foster team for winning Maine Seacoast Mission’s 14th Annual Tennis Tournament on Saturday, September 8th, at the Northeast Harbor Tennis Club.
R.H. Foster broke the Small Animal Clinic’s record of winning the four previous tournaments. The EdGE team defeated Jock Williams Boat Yard in first semi final; R.H. Foster defeated Dead River. In the final, R.H. Foster narrowly defeated EdGE 17-15.
The tournament proceeds benefit the Mission’s EdGE (Ed Greaves Education) youth development program. The Mission’s EdGE runs after-school, in-school, and summer programs in Washington/Hancock Counties to give kids tools and resources to succeed in school and in life.
Assistant EdGE Director Isaac Marnik said, “From the EdGE perspective everything went great! EdGE students took part in the one-hour tennis clinic at the Bar Harbor Club. Students enjoyed a BBQ at the Mission’s Colket Center HQ, stayed overnight, and watched Saturday’s Tennis Tournament. They all had a great time and all want to play more tennis,” said Isaac Marnik.
Anna Silver, the Mission’s Assistant Development Director and tournament coordinator said the event raised $18,000 for the EdGE program. “Special thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers,” said Silver.
