Tennis Fest 2017

2017 Tennis Fun Fest

For 11 consecutive years, La Grange teenager Crofton Kelly provided a generous helping hand to kids with cancer by organizing, implementing and coordinating a local tennis tournament designed to raise funds to benefit the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation. Last year Crofton Kelly laid down his racquet and passed along the job of implementing and coordinating the Tennis Fun Fest to his sister, Mattigan Kelly. All proceeds benefited the Orland Park-based non-profit organization which provides comfort and distraction from painful procedures to children and teens diagnosed with cancer by providing a toy, gift or gift card in 51 hospitals nationwide.

The hardworking teenager’s 12th Annual Tennis Fun Fest recently drew participation by more than 125 children and some professionals at the Hinsdale Racquet Club. The popular event featured round robin matches, fun-drills, raffles, refreshments and prizes and ultimately raised $9,400 to benefit children fighting cancer. Overall, Crofton and Mattigan’s amazing efforts have netted more than $62,650 over the course of the fundraising event’s existence.

Mattigan described her reasons for helping the Treasure Chest Foundation and young cancer patients by saying, “I really like helping people and this is a wonderful way to do it. It’s been real fun organizing this event.”

Alison Kelly, Mattigan’s Mom, was also pleased with the amazing turnout and response from the Tennis Fun Fest participants, saying, “I am excited that Mattigan wants to combine her passion of playing tennis along with serving others to help kids who are battling cancer. I am very proud of her. It was our biggest turnout ever!”
