Lily & Co. Jewelers returns as a Grand Slam Sponsor of the 9th Annual Madisen’s Match on March 31 and April 1 at The Landings Yacht & Golf & Tennis Club, Fort Myers, with its donation of a Rolex Yachtmaster for auction at the Friday evening gala. Silent and live auctions raise funds for the Golisano Children’s Hospital.
“We are pleased to be a part of this terrific charity tennis event,” said Dan Schuyler, who owns Lily & Co. with Realtor Karen Bell. “The funds raised from Madisen’s Match stay locally, here in Southwest Florida, and go directly to helping brain tumor patients and their families. We think that is a very worthy cause to support.”
Madisen’t Match Gala & Auction will be an evening of dinner and entertainment by the Danny Sinoff Jazz Quartet. The Rolex Yachtmaster is revered for its casual yet purposeful allure. Its extremely readable whether on the open sea or on land in an elegant yacht club, such as The Landings along the Caloosahatchee River.
Saturday will feature six celebrity tennis pros: Mardy Fish, Robby Ginepri, former David Cup Team Captain Tom Gullikson, French Open Finalist Mikael Pernfors, French Open Doubles Champions Luke Jensen and Murphy Jensen. Sponsors and participants will have the opportunity for interactive on-court instruction, round-robin, Pro-Am and feature exhibition matches.
Madisen is the niece of founder Duane Chaney. She was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of three and the inspiration behind Madisen’s Match. She has her match everyday as she battles her brain tumor, but is the face of survival and hope for others in their match for their lives.
In its eight year history, Madisen’s Match has raised more than $500,000 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 building of the “Madisen’s Match Playroom” in the Golisano Children’s Hospital of SWFL.
