Zagreb Open Tennis in support of our school project

Rotarian Tomislav Maravic, a good friend of our incoming President Shantha has been one of our continuous supporters. He has been raising and transferring funds for the relief efforts almost from day one.

Tomislav, who is the President of ITFR [International Tennis Fellowship of Rotarians] had over the last few weeks been busy organizing the ITFR Tournament: Zagreb Open 2005. It is scheduled for the 12 February. Sign in starts at 9:00 AM on at Tenis Dvorana Podsused in Zagreb, Croatia. For more details please go to the ITFR site.

The tournament has already attracted more then 40 players and more then 50 Rotarians on site. It is expected to raise more then USD 3,000 for the tsunami victims in
Sri Lanka and three Rotary clubs [Zagreb Centar, Zagreb and Hvar] have already collected around USD 7,000 and they plan to add the same to the tournament proceeds for our school project in Sri Lanka.

Thank you to Tomislav and all your colleagues for your immense support. It is appreciated.
