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!
