Lily & Co. Jewelers, for the second year, is proud to sponsor the 11th annual Hope Hospice Tennis Challenge to be held Nov. 9-10 at the Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel Island.

The event has raised more than $95,000 throughout the years for Hope Hospice, a non-profit organization that cares for more than 2,000 individuals of all ages and at every stage of serious illness and their families every day.

“We are honored to be a part of this event, which supports such a great organization,” said Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell, owners of Lily & Co. “It will be a fun weekend of tennis, too.”

There will be amazing raffle items donated by Lily & Co., such as a 14-karat white diamond gold tennis racket pendant adorned by more than 25 diamonds on an 18-inch chain, a value of $1,150; a limited edition ladies watch from the Michele Garden Party Collection, sparkling with more than 60 diamonds and a sapphire crystal, valued at $1,650. There will also be an Italian hand-blown star fish carafe complimented by six matching high-ball glasses, all valued at $700, up for raffle.

The tennis challenge will consist of men’s and women’s doubles 3.0 to 4.5, bracketed single elimination with consolation rounds. “That means a guaranteed two matches no matter how bad a day your partner is having,” said Christie Bradley, director of tennis and fitness at The Sanctuary Golf Club. Holly McIntosh and Kerry Kendrick will enter for team Lily.
