Round the Clock Racquet Rally brings in food, dollars for Arvada Community Food Bank

The stars shone on the tennis-loving night owls at the third annual Round the Clock Racquet Rally, held Friday, August 25 through Saturday, August 26, 2012 at the Arvada Tennis Center, 6430MillerStreet. This event is a fund-raiser for the Arvada Community Food Bank, and it brought in a total of $1,359 and about 150 pounds of food.

We all know how much teenagers love to stay up late, so they combined their tennis skills and circadian rhythms to great effect to support the fund-raiser. Both Ralston Valley High School and Arvada West High School provided players to play for a 2-block period. There were about 30 players from both schools in attendance, with support from both Coach Russ and Coach Kenfield.

Thanks to the following sponsors: Heritage College, 5 J’s Family Italian Dining, Einstein Bagels, Apex Park and Recreation District, Little Caesars, Starbucks, Big Time Trampoline, Dairy Queen, Yogurtland, Noodles & Company, Little Nicks, Tea Garden, Chipotle, Beau Jo’s, El Senor Sol, Into the Fire, Jumpin’ Jordys, Rocky Mountain Racquet Specialists, Mile High Wine Cellars, Hestera Chiropractic, Green Leaf Massage Center, C’Vontri Salon, Panda Express and Coldstone Creamery and Malones. A great team effort for a great cause!
