As a former junior tennis player, you may have played in a tournament organized by Mrs. Mary Seelig. If her name isn’t familiar, maybe the memory of eating gummy bears during a tournament will spark a memory. Whether you won the championship or lost in the first round, it didn’t matter to Mary – every junior player was a "winner" and a "learner". Although it may seem small, her gift of gummy bears during tournaments made a lasting impression on young players – possibly even you - and she’s still remembered for this small gesture over 25 years later. Now 8? years old, Mary still loves tennis and continues to volunteer her time to the sport and the USTA/Midwest Section.
The Midwest Youth Tennis & Education Foundation (MYTEF), the charitable arm of the USTA/Midwest Section, is proud to be honoring Mary at its 2016 Charity Gala where she will serve as Honorary Chair. The Charity Gala takes place Friday, February 5, 6:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel.
We ask that you consider honoring Mary by making a donation that will support our current generation of "winners" and "learners". Please help us reach our goal of $50,000! Your money will support young tennis players through various scholarships and grants. Those that make a donation in Mary’s name will be invited to a reception prior to the Charity Gala in celebration of Mary and her years of service.
