Lily & Co. Jewelers graciously supports the 8th Annual Madisen’s Match tennis charity event March 18-19 at The Landings Yacht & Golf & Tennis Club, Fort Myers, through its donation of a handsome Rolex Submariners watch for the Friday auction gala hosted by NBC 2 afternoon anchor Chad Oliver.
“We are pleased to be a part of this terrific charity event,” Lily & Co. Owners Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell said. “The funds raised from Madisen’s Match stay locally, here in Southwest Florida, and go directly to helping both children and adults being treated for brain tumors. We can’t think of a better cause to support.”
Madisen’s Match Gala & Auction will be a Friday evening of dinner and live jazz from the Danny Sinoff Quartet. The stainless steel Rolex Submariner wristwatch to be auctioned is in the Oyster case with a unidirectional rotating bezel and automatic movement with a Quickset date function. The black tone dial has Luminescent hands and markers. It’s valued at $8,200.
Saturday will feature eight tennis legends and two rising stars currently on the ATP tour. Sponsors and participants will have the opportunity for interactive on-court instruction, round-robin, Pro-Am and feature exhibition matches. Nick Bollettieri, Don Johnson, Luke Jensen, Kathy Rinaldi and Lisa Raymond are among the list of celebrity pros.
Madisen is the niece of founder Daune Chaney. She was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of three and the inspiration behind Madisen’s Match – to help others facing the same struggles as her.
In its seven year history, Madisen’s Match has raised more than $350,000 to support the Tim and Tom Gulikson Brain Tumor Foundation, The Brain Tumor Navigator Program at The Regional Cancer Center of The Lee Memorial Health System and toward the funding of of the “Madisen’s Match Playroom” in the soon-to-be-built Golisano Children’s Hospital of SWFL.
