Support Me

Thank you for visiting the fundraising page associated with the Dave Thompson Memorial Tennis Tournament.  We are honored to be able to support, in Dave's name, the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization committed to declaring Victory Over Cancer. The research the V Foundation funds is critical.  By making a donation you will be supporting carefully vetted, cutting-edge research at prominent cancer centers nationwide.  By joining other fellow tennis players in this event, hopefully our donations will make a difference as we honor Dave's contributions to the tennis community in our area.
