Volunteers needed for Pine Tree Apple Tennis Classic

You can help the cancer research program at Children’s this weekend by volunteering for the Pine Tree Apple Tennis Classic.

The PTATC, Aug. 4-7 at the Lifetime Fitness in White Bear Lake, is an annual tournament and is considered one of the premier, United States Tennis Association(USTA)-sanctioned, mixed doubles tennis tournaments.

The mission of the PTATC is to host an annual mixed doubles tennis tournament to raise funds that primarily support research to lessen the suffering caused by childhood cancer. All proceeds benefit the cancer research program at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

We need help on the morning of Sunday, Aug. 7, with registration, food and beverage, the water stop, and along the course.  Timing would be about 7-10 a.m., depending on the task.

We’re also looking for help at the tournament.  Our greatest need is on Thursday, Aug. 4, 4-6 p.m. or 6-8 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 6, 11:30-1:30, 1:30-3:30 and 3:30-5:30.  Tasks include ticket sales, food sales, merchandise sales, and clean-up.

Volunteers can contact me at allison.balfanz@childrensnm.org or 651-855-2803.
