Celebrate Tennis raises funds for the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program at the Siteman Cancer Center, with 100% of the proceeds going to the program. The event consists of a women’s round robin tennis tournament, silent auction and luncheon held annually at the Chesterfield Athletic Club.
THE YOUNG WOMEN’S BREAST CANCER PROGRAM (YWBCP) provides vital support education and healthy activity programs for young women while conducting targeted research. Breast cancer is a different disease for these women–typically more aggressive AND more deadly. Our goal is to continue our support so that young women in St. Louis will have the YWBCP to turn to when they need it most.
