For eight years local Bay Area Racquetball players have celebrated the holiday spirit by having a racquetball tournament where the players bring toys for the children of families who otherwise might not get presents at Christmas. A couple years ago, the Reaching Your Dream Foundation moved the tournament to a larger club and branded it: A Season of Giving. On Saturday December 12th A Season of Giving sponsored a one-day shootout which was filled to capacity of 92 players.
Between the gifts the players brought, and those collected as part of the RYDF A Season of Giving, over 350 unwrapped presents were collected to be given to lower income families. A huge thank you to the Lanman Family who for the last eight years have helped gather greatly needed toys through the efforts of Monte Vista High School’s Scholastic Society. Robyn Lanman continues to help us even after their three kids (now young adults) have graduated and gone on to college and medical school
Special thanks to Kim Randolph for all her hard work in putting this event together. Lastly, thank you to Dave Ruybalid, Athletic Director at the Big C, for helping us secure his club for our event and supporting the tournament in many other ways.
Congrats to our winners:
B Doubles: Irvin Sanchez/Richard Lozada
Elite/A Doubles: Austin Fernandez/Shawn Fernandez
Open Doubles: Harold Jagoda/Jose Diaz
Mixed Advanced Doubles: Carlos Contreras/Heather Colon
See you in 2016!
