Join us in creating an opportunity to make an international and global impact on Solano County businesses and communities. HOPE Tournament is a tennis tournament/exhibition fundraiser created to promote positive community engagement and healthy activities within the Solano County communities. As a valuable supporter of this inaugural event, your donations and attendance will be supporting two Africa-based charities, Blood Water Mission and Teboho Trust.

The HOPE Tournament fundraiser is scheduled from Friday, June 8 through Saturday June 9, 2012 at Millennium SportsClub located at 124 Lincoln Road East in Vallejo, California. The community tennis tournament is slated for action on Saturday with a pre-tournament launch of activities such as auctions, surprise guests, delicious food, entertainment and special reflections from charities taking place on Friday.


Teboho Trust is an educational fund program out of Soweto, Africa for underprivileged orphaned youth who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. Blood Water Mission is an organization dedicated to creating clean water wells for various villages throughout Sub-Saharan parts of Africa. More details on these two deserving charities will be presented at our Launch Event on June 8th (7pm-9pm) and through a series of e-facts we will be sending up until event day.

Please join us for this very special and rare event, bringing Solano County and surrounding communities together...making a global and international impact while supporting a great cause.

Unless only attending one of the events listed above, please be sure to RSVP to both events via the two separate tickets created on this event page. This event is free, however, we will kindly be asking for contributions of $20 (or what you can give) at the door. We will also be selling raffle tickets and taking bids for auction items on display. Our number one goal is to raise funds for these charities so please come with cash (check okay if donating directly to the charities when you arrive) and get ready to have some fun!
