The Highland Park Tennis Association and its Highland Open Tournament Team are proud to announce that the 2015 Jim Crane State Farm Highland Open raised $22,363 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The tournament hosted 119 men’s and women’s doubles teams (238 players) and was held April 17-19 at BREC’s Highland Park Tennis Center in Baton Rouge.

The 2015 total was the second-highest in the Highland Open’s 33-year history, surpassed only by the 2011 total of $23,000. The funds were raised from a variety of sources, including corporate and business donations, tournament entry fees, a raffle and silent auction, and the “65 Roses” campaign. Thanks to all of the individuals, businesses and organizations that helped us achieve our goal!

Since 2010, the Highland Open fundraising efforts have contributed $129,056 to CFF:

  • $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 2015. Here are the tallies for those six years:

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