Bryan Brothers Annual Cool Planet Tennis Fest
Raises Nearly $100,000 for Bryan Bros. Foundation
Camarillo, Calif., (Oct. 18, 2012) – A little music, food and some tennis fun highlighted the annual Bryan Brothers Cool Planet Tennis Fest recently at the Spanish Hills Country Club as nearly $100,000 was raised for the Bryan Bros. Foundation.
Rock singer Gavin Rossdale of the band “Bush”, former ATP touring pros Rick Leach, Jeff Tarango and the USC men’s team joined Mike and Bob in the annual event presented by Alexander Cadillac. Even the Olympic gold medal the twins won in London this past summer made an appearance and was passed around for all to view and hold.
“We so appreciate the fans coming out to support our Foundation and the Tennis Fest,” Bob Bryan said.
Added Mike: “It was so great to see the crowd having such a good time, enjoying the tennis, the food and drinks and the music. We love putting on the Tennis Fest and plan to do it again next year.”
Both the Ventura County Junior Tennis Association and the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons are the major beneficiaries of the event, as well as other local causes and regional charities supported by the Bryan Bros. Foundation.
“Bob and Mike always take time from their crazy schedule to host their Foundation event and give back to so many area kid’s charities in need of funding,” said Tennis Fest organizer Dave McKinney.
In the celebrity exhibition, Rossdale joined the Bryan Brothers and former American Idol performer Michael Johns. Later in the day, the Bryan Bros. Band entertained the crowd with a concert.
McKinney reported that the Pro-Am was won by Harold Edwards with Ron Weckbacher a finalist. More than 45 area restaurants and wineries participated in the event.
