MAC TENNIS PLAYERS RALLY FOR THE CURE
MANCHESTER, MA—July 21, 2015. On Friday evening, October 21, the MAC
Manchester Athletic Club hosted a Rally for the Cure Adult Tennis Social. Rally is a
grass roots program that works to spread awareness about breast cancer through
organized golf, tennis and social events.
This year marks the second year the MAC has rallied against breast cancer with over 70
tennis players and pros participating and over $2,000 raised.
Since its start in 1996, the Rally program has touched over 2.7 million people with the
important message that early detection and effective treatment saves lives. In addition to
mobilizing people behind breast cancer awareness, Rally events have generated over
$77 million for Susan G. Komen.
”The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like, Kasie Van Faasen,
MAC Membership Consultant, and Claudine Watson and Chrissy Lyons, MAC Tennis
Coordinators, who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally at our club’. It is their enthusiasm,
energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” says
Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure. To host a Rally for the Cure event

“We are committed to hosting additional fundraising events throughout the year as a way
to spread awareness for foundations while having some fun on the courts,” said MAC’s
Director of Tennis, Todd Carpenter.
The next fundraising event to be held at the MAC will be a tennis social on November 19
with guest of honor and legendary tennis coach, Nick Bollettieri. For more information or
