Boston Indoor Tennis Classic helped Phinney’s this year!

June 18, 2014

The 17th Annual Boston Indoor Tennis Classic, that took place this month at the Winchester Tennis Club, featured Phinney’s Friends as their charity of the year. Cliff Gibbons organized a charitable opening dinner, where Phinney’s Board Member Laura Howes, our Financial Coordinator, talked about the work we do to help low-income families keep their pets to the group of 60 attendees. Also, Michelle Dufresne, whose cat was helped by Phinney’s in the past and who is now a dedicated volunteer at the organization, spoke about how Phinney’s supported her cat through fostering and vet bills.

Not only was the group excited to hear about how the organization helps pets and their owners, but they wanted to help out too. Phinney’s raised over $1000 at the event, and several people expressed interest in volunteering with the organization.

Overall, the volunteers were excited to spread the word about Phinney’s Friends, and the group was excited to support our cause. The team at Phinney’s Friends is so thankful for the opportunity to take part in the 17th Annual Boston Indoor Tennis Classic. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event!
