40th Annual Sickle Cell Tennis Classic Sponsorship Information

Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and its 501 (C) (3) charitable arm The Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc. will host the 40th Annual Sickle Cell Tennis Classic on the weekends of Aug 5-6 & Aug 12-13, 2017.

We would like your support and commitment to enable us to continue the fight against sickle cell disease. All proceeds from the 2017 Classic will be donated to the Nemours Hospital for Children’s Sickle Cell Research and Treatment Program. Although a cure has not been found, new therapy and heightened awareness of the disease continue to improve the maintenance of the condition of those afflicted.

The Sickle Cell Classic attracts a diverse crowd of over 400 tennis players and fans from Delaware and surrounding states for two action packed weekends of competitive play.
