Jansen Mixed 2008

FEBRUARY 3, 2008

The Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care Mixed Platform Tennis Tournament was a huge success this year,
raising more than $13,000 for The Jansen charity.

Forty-five teams from across Westchester (and beyond) participated As usual, though the competition was fierce, the camaraderie was superlative. The event took place on the brisk weekend of January 26 and 27 at several sites, including the Bronxville Village courts, Siwanoy Country Club, Bronxville Field Club, and Fox Meadow Tennis Club.

Tina Kelly and Gary Squires won the tournament in an exciting finals against Carrie Rabuse and Chris Magner (4-6, 7-5, 6-3). The Reprieve was won by Cammy McFadden and Michael McCann over Carolyn and Larry Bodkin. In the Consolation, Ann Manning and David Claiborne defeated Linda Finn and Jack VonMaur. Meanwhile, Robin Lucia and Dick Bower beat Barbara McGraw and Marcus Higgins in the Lucky Loser division.

Sugar Genereaux, a Bronxville native and member of the original Jansen staff, is the organizer of this popular event. Her tireless support is a testament to what volunteers can do to make a difference. With her considerable energy and the support of John Stoffel and many enthusiastic assistants, she organized more than 80 sponsors.

The silent auction at the Saturday night cocktail party offered something for everyone, including gift certificates to several restaurants, cases of fine wine, and fashions for the family. The hottest auction item was tickets to the U.S. Golf Open donated by the USGA. The real winner of this event was Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care who provide compassionate support and services to the terminally ill. For more information visit: http://www.jansenhospice.org.
