The Highland Park Tennis Association and its Highland Open Tournament Team raised a record $24,808 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through the Jim Crane State Farm Highland Open and its related fundraising efforts.

The tournament hosted almost 100 men’s and women’s doubles teams and was held April 15-17 at BREC’s Highland Park Tennis Center in Baton Rouge.

The 2016 total was the highest amount raised in the Highland Open’s 34-year history; the previous record was $23,000, raised in 2011.  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!

Since 2010, the Highland Open fundraising efforts have contributed $153,864 to CFF:

  • $24,808 (2016)
  • $22,363 (2015)
  • $21,725 (2014)
  • $19,815 (2013)
  • $20,653 (2012)
  • $23,000 (2011)
  • $21,500 (2010)

Also, since 2010, HPTA has conducted its “65 Roses” campaign before and during the Highland Open tournament to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We are very proud to announce that HPTA exceeded its 65 Roses goal again in 2016. Here are the tallies for those seven years:

  • 2016 – 75 Roses
  • 2015 – 80 Roses
  • 2014 – 68 Roses
  • 2013 – 72 Roses
  • 2012 – 80 Roses
  • 2011 – 86 Roses
  • 2010 – 84 Roses
