The Highland Park Tennis Association and its Highland Open Tournament Team are proud to announce that $18,209 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through the 2018 Jim Crane State Farm Highland Open and its related fundraising efforts.

The tournament consisting of men’s and women’s doubles teams was held April 13-15 at BREC’s Highland Park Tennis Center in Baton Rouge.

The funds were raised from a variety of sources, including corporate and business donations, tournament entry fees, a silent auction, the “65 Roses” campaign, and the weekly HPTA Round Robin “tip jar.” Thanks to all of the individuals, businesses and organizations that helped us achieve our goal!
