The DetailsUnderstanding The Cause

With the help of legendary Olympic Gold Medalist Gigi Fernández, Coosa Country Club is proud to host “A Day for Puerto Rico.” This event will support the rebuilding of neighborhood tennis facilities identified by the Puerto Rican Tennis Association. Donations will also fund tennis programs for local children. Our goal is to get racquets into children’s hands and provide a safe and healthy place for the people of Puerto Rico to recreate and begin to live a normal life.

There are many outstanding relief efforts already underway in Puerto Rico addressing basic human needs. Recreational facilities are often neglected after natural disasters. Yet, it is essential that Puerto Rican children and adults have the opportunity to play and laugh and be active while they are rebuilding the island infrastructure.
