The 2017 Sally Paddle Tennis Tournament was a great success, raising $35,000 in support of The Sanctuary, Westchester County’s only teen homeless shelter. Carrie Cochrane and Leslie Gambee beat Jane Foster and Michele Shepard in three competitive sets (4-6, 6-2, 10-3). Congratulations, Carrie (pictured below in grey) and Leslie (far right)!
Proceeds from The Sally support the Children’s Village Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for Westchester County (NY) teens who are homeless or have run away, often from unsafe or abusive homes. They come to the shelter voluntarily, often after spending weeks or months on the street. Each year, more than 200 at-risk teens come to the shelter lonely and scared and leave with a safe place to go and a plan for success.
