Community involvement has been key to the success of our Tennis Tournament fund raising efforts in the past. We are reaching out again for your support. This year’s event, our 8th Annual “Aces for Autism” Tennis Tournament will be held at the Kingwood Country Club on Tuesday, October 13th, 2015. We’ve slightly changed the name of this year’s event to give it a fresh feel and new zing! We’ve also added online team fundraising to our arsenal and hope everyone joins in and competes in the virtual world, as well as the court! Details at www.includingkids.org!

And, like in the past, we need items we can offer as prizes for our silent auction, raffle, and door prizes, as well as items for our participants’ goody bags. Through your assistance and the donations from our participants, we envision another successful event this year. We would like to extend a special thanks to those of you who have supported us in past years, and we hope to continue to build relationships with each of you.
Currently autism affects 1 in 68 children, a number that is on the rise and calls for action. Early intervention for a child with autism is crucial.
