The Highland Park Tennis Association and its Highland Open Tournament Team are proud to announce that $20,976 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through the 2017 Jim Crane State Farm Highland Open and its related fundraising efforts.
The tournament hosted 168 players (84 men’s and women’s doubles teams) and was held April 7-9 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!

Thanks to our 2017 Rose Sponsors so far, as we seek to exceed our “65 Roses” goal for the eighth year in a row. Every dollar of every $100 Rose goes directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure for this terrible disease. Since 2010, the Highland Open’s fundraising efforts have contributed $153,864 to CFF, and $54,400 of those funds have come from Rose sponsorships.
