It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to the sponsors and organizers of our 17th EdGE Tennis Tournament.
The EdGE Tennis Tournament, held Saturday, October 2 at the Causeway Club in Southwest Harbor, raised funds for Ed Greaves Education (EdGE), the Mission’s youth development program. Local businesses sponsor four-person teams for morning and afternoon matches of exciting, competitive tennis. Mission President John Zavodny said, “EdGE kids are better off because of your work and support.”
NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME – The Mission’s 17th Annual Tennis Tournament to benefit EdGE is Saturday, Sept. 25, at The Causeway Club, Southwest Harbor, ME. Money raised thanks to this event’s sponsors and participants helps fund the Mission’s innovative EdGE after-school, summer, and in-school programs for hundreds of children along the Downeast coast.
EdGE is designed to teach students to make smart, informed choices about their futures and develop the resources and skills to be successful and happy in life. EdGE students challenge themselves, engage with their communities and outdoors, and gain leadership skills.
We strongly believe cost should not be a barrier to participating in summer camps, after-school programs, and leadership workshops. All EdGE programs are free or low-cost, including free transportation and meals.
