Alta Bates Summit Foundation is proud to
announce the 19th Annual Celebrity Tennis Classic
and “Casino Royale” Gala on Saturday, October 2, 2010, at
the Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort
respectively. The all-day tournament will feature the most
player in the history of tennis,
International Tennis Hall of Famer Martina Navratilova.
Navratilova will share the day with Bay Area tennis pros and
celebrities from radio, television and sports.
This remarkable presentation of extraordinary
tennis talent represents a new high in the growth and
prosperity of what is considered to be one of
the most successful and
longest-running celebrity charity tennis events in the
United States. Over the
years, the Alta Bates Summit Celebrity Tennis Classic,
which continually sells out the
Berkeley Tennis Club,
has featured such tennis luminaries as
Pancho Gonzales, Rod Laver, the
Brothers, Tracy Austin, Ilie Nastase, and Monica Seles, to
name just a few.
The “Casino Royale” Gala will
be held after the Celebrity Tennis Classic at the Claremont
Resort and Spa in Berkeley. Attendees will experience the
thrill and excitement of casino gaming, sip some fine wine
and other libations, dine on a delicious variety of
international cuisine, and can participate in an exciting
live auction and casino gaming along with Martina
Navratilova and other participants from the day’s tennis
support the lifesaving work of
Thunder Road Adolescent Treatment Center. Established in
1987, Thunder Road is Alta
Bates Summit’s life-changing residential recovery program
for chemical dependency for young people and their
families. Having raised over $4.2 million since its
inception, the Celebrity Tennis has benefited a number of
other programs and services the Medical Center provides in
meeting the health care needs of the East Bay Community.
Sponsor benefits can include
such perks as player spot(s) in the tournament, court
signage, donor recognition, tickets to the tournament and
the “Casino Royale” Gala.
