PARKLAND, FL- The Make Our Schools Safe 3rd Annual Women's Tennis Round Robin and Shopping Boutique Fundraiser is making a shift in dates due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The event is now scheduled for Friday, December 4, 2020.
Make Our Schools Safe Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded by IIan and Lori Alhadeff after the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas on February 14, 2018, the day they lost their 14-year-old daughter, Alyssa. The mission of Make Our Schools Safe is to strengthen the weaknesses in school security and safety in honor of the 17 lives lost that day.
Many sponsorship levels are still available for the event, ranging from a Family Sponsorship for $100 to a Presenting Sponsorship for $5,000. Tickets to participate are also still available.
Money raised from the event will benefit the work Make Our Schools Safe is doing to improve school’s safety and security, including: specialized fencing to create a single point of entry, ballistic glass on schools, stop the bleed kits and training, Alyssa’s Law (silent panic alarms in schools), mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
The event runs from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. at the Rob Nickels Tennis Center in Parkland.
