BAYTOWN, TX – Pull on your best pink attire and grab a racket from 7:30-9 p.m., Monday, Oct. 21, to help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness at the Adult Tennis Social Mixer to be held at the Lee College tennis courts.

For a $20 registration fee, participants will have the opportunity to play in doubles matches and enjoy light refreshments. A portion of the proceeds from the mixer will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a nationally known foundation dedicated to education and research about the causes and treatment of breast cancer and the ongoing search for a cure.

Games are open to players of all skill levels and prizes will be awarded — but even those who are not diehard tennis fans will enjoy networking and socializing with their friends and neighbors at the event, said Lee College tennis professional Nadia Miller.

A former member of the Lee tennis team, Miller has friends and acquaintances whose loved ones have had to deal with the harsh realities of a breast cancer diagnosis.

“I share their pain and I can’t imagine what their families are going through,” she said. “This is a chance to get all the tennis players together to support a good cause.”

For more information about the tennis mixer, contact Miller at 281.425.6843 or nmiller@lee.edu.
