About Our Auction
This year I am adding a silent auction to raise extra funds for the children helped by The Treasure Chest. Over the past 11 years, we have all raised over $53,000 through the $20 entry fee, raffle tickets, and Rally for Cure. The community has been wonderful!
I am hoping this auction allows all our friends, not only the ones able to make it to the Tennis Fest, to partake in this worthy cause. Hope you see something you love!
If you have anything to donate, give me a call! 708-310-5335 - I can always add it! :)

About Mattigan's 13th Annual Tennis Fun Fest
Mattigan’s Tennis Fun Fest was started by my brother, Crofton, when he was 8 years old. Three years ago, when my brother went to college, I took over the event at age 14. This annual tennis event includes tennis drills and tennis games for approximately 100 kids, 25 adults, and 10 top area tennis pros. It is held at Hinsdale Racquet Club. The 10 area pros create drills and games for the kids and adults. We also have a raffle with donated children's gift baskets and a Rally for a Cure segment asking for pledges from family and friends. Over the past 12 years, we have raised over $62,000 for the Treasure Chest Foundation.
The Treasure Chest Foundation is a non-for-profit organization, headquartered in Chicago, which delivers toys and treats to kids going through cancer treatments. After a cancer treatment, a child is able to go to a treasure chest set up in the hospital and pick out a toy. These gifts are able to give a little joy to a child fighting such a tough battle. The Treasure Chest Foundation has treasure chests set up in 50 hospitals nationwide.
