WILMETTE – Prominent North Shore residents mixed it up with Adaptive Adventures veterans and other wheel-chair-bound athletes on September 14 for an evening of platform tennis, social mingling and charitable giving hosted by Travelon and the Godshaw family of Wilmette. The evening included an exhibition played by four top-ranked platform tennis players.
The event took place at the Wilmette Platform Tennis Club and Club House. Complete with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres the evening was rewarding in the time and laughter shared between community members and the amazing athletes from Adaptive
Adventures, a 501©(3) organization.
Many of the participants made generous donations to Adaptive Adventures whose mission is to provide progressive outdoor sports opportunities to improve quality of life for children, adults and veterans with physical disabilities and their families.
Contributions were matched for a total of $45,000. These gifts will go toward providing skiing, cycling, rock climbing even waterskiing and wakeboarding programs just to name a few.
