Tennis Tournament

Red Balloon Children Helping Children Tennis Tournament

Raise your racket and raise funds for children with cancer

Thanks to all our dedicated players and supporters for making the 2019 Tennis Tournament a great success! Together, we raised more than $85,000 to benefit the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. We look forward to seeing you next year on September 19-20, 2020 for the special 30th anniversary of The Red Balloon Children Helping Children Tennis Tournament.

The event for boys and girls ages 8 to 18 will include prizes, kid-friendly activities, a silent auction and more. Players and their families raise money to support the Children's Health Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, where more than 1,000 new patients are cared for each year, making it the largest childhood cancer and blood disease center in the region.
