EPATT serves aces while raising funds for literacy program

 

Former tennis stars Lindsay Davenport and Brad Gilbert helped the East Palo Alto Tennis and Tutoring (EPATT) after-school program for underserved kids in the local community host its second EPATT Kids Cup Pro-Am Tennis Tournament at Stanford's Taube Family Tennis Center last Saturday.

The Kids Cup fundraiser was hoping to raise $100,000 for Project Rally, EPATT's new early literacy pilot program for at-risk students in the Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD).

Among the many former Stanford players who took part in the doubles tournament were All-Americans Tim Mayotte and Scott Davis, to name just a few.
