The 10th Annual Madisen’s Match on March 18-19 in Fort Myers raised over $300,000.

Comprised of the Golisano Children’s Hospital Pro Tennis Classic, Madisen’s Match Legends Tennis Camp and Pro-Am, and Madisen’s Match VIP Gala and Auction, it raises money for adults and children who are being treated for cancer by supporting both national and Southwest Florida-based programs.

Since 2011, the funds raised have supported Barbara’s Friends, the Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Center Fund, and the Brain Tumor Navigator Program at the Lee Health’s Regional Cancer Center.

The amount raised this year is a record, bringing the 10-year total to nearly $1 million raised.

The legendary 16-time Grand Slam champion doubles team of Mike and Bob Bryan donated $5,000 to support the cause. Their donation was received shortly after they won the Miami Open doubles title.

Other headliners for the events included Sam Querrey, 2017 Wimbledon semifinalist; former top-ranked American Mardy Fish; and former world No. 15 Robby Ginepri. In addition, the Bryan brothers put on a show as the Bryan Brothers Band, which included Counting Crows drummer Jim Bogios.

Lily & Co. Jewelers on Sanibel returned as a Grand Slam sponsor for the fundraiser this year and donated a Beny Sofer 10-carat diamond tennis bracelet for the auction.
