For 56 seasons, tennis legend Roy Emerson and his wife Joy, have hosted the Roy Emerson Tennis Classic to benefit a charity close to their hearts: Holy Family Services and Foster Care Agency.

Funds raised at this event, along with those raised at the Guild’s Patroness Luncheon, go directly to support the services provided by HFS. The massive undertaking is being co-chaired by Chris Garber and Katie Richardson.

The Palisades Tennis Club is set to host the event over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. They will be joined by other local tennis facilities including The Tennis Club, The Racquet Club of Irvine and Mesa Verde Country Club.
