JACKSON, Wyo. — July is in full swing, which means it’s time to reserve your spot in the 19th Annual Steve Winograd Memorial Diabetes Tennis Tournament taking place Friday, July 23 through Sunday, July 25 at Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club.
Benefiting the St. John’s Health Foundation Diabetes Fund, the three-day tournament supports diabetes education and medical care for community members with all forms of diabetes, including Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Funds support nutrition education and patient counseling, pay for insulin and supplies for pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (GCM), and offer financial assistance to local families to send their children to regional diabetes support camps.
Teams in this doubles tournament can be mixed, women’s, men’s, or parent/child. The cost to participate is $100 per person and $50 to play in a second category. Breakfast throughout the weekend is provided by The Bunnery and lunch for players and spectators is provided by Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club.
Not a tennis player? Join us on Sunday, July 25 at 6pm for a closing dinner and silent auction event generously sponsored by Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club. Dinner is complimentary for tournament players and $50 for the public.
