About The Event
Last year, the 2012 Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic raised an amazing $600,000 dollars. Since 1989, Chris Evert's efforts have contributed over $20.6 million in an ongoing campaign against drug abuse and child neglect in Florida. With the help of loyal and generous sponsors, participating celebrities, legions of volunteers and a dedicated staff, Chris Evert continues to raise money to fund programs that ensure a bright future for at-risk children and their families. Hosted at the Delray Beach Tennis Center and the celebrated Boca Raton Resort & Club, this multi-day event features two days of Pro-Celebrity Tennis, the Classic Cocktail Party, Tennis with Chrissie and Friends at the Pro-Am and the Pro-Celebrity Gala, an elegant, first-class evening of entertainment, dining and dancing.
