Memorial Day Weekend, May 24 – May 26, 2014
As part of Tennis Thanks the Troops, the United States Professional Tennis Association and ThanksUSA have teamed up to encourage USPTA professionals to raise money for scholarships given to the families of military men and women.
During Tennis Thanks the Troops, Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-26, 2014, tennis professionals and enthusiasts nationwide are asked to host fundraising events or donate to the ThanksUSA organization, which provides need-based post-secondary scholarships for college, technical and vocational school, to the children and spouses of active-duty military men and women. Since its inception in 2006, ThanksUSA has awarded over 3,000 scholarships totaling nearly $10 million. (To learn more about the families who have benefited from ThanksUSA scholarships, click here.)
