Harry Weiler Memorial Tennis Tournament
On July 24, 2020, Harry Weiler, one of our volunteers passed away.
His wife Laurie Clarke, with the help of his good friend John Miller planned this tournament which was held on August 15 & 16 at Hollywood Park Tennis Courts in Victoria.
The tournament was a tremendous success!
It was exactly what Harry would have wanted.
Everyone had a great time with an underlying awareness of the specialness of the day.
Over $6,000.00 was raised for KATS.
What a fitting tribute to a wonderful husband and friend!!!
Our special thanks to Laurie and John
