Moline Park and Recreation was hoping to sponsor an event/ fundraiser for us to help with our goal of raising $100,000 to insure the Riverside complex is eight lighted courts and a great complex.  Unfortunately, the event was canceled twice due to Covid, so they are putting the purses on an online auction Nov. 16-20 only.  We need as much publicity as possible in order to get good bids!  Every bit of the proceeds goes directly to our goal for the courts.  This complex is now under contract and will be finished by June 2021.  It is adjacent to the eight  lighted tennis courts at Riverside, therefore it makes a great spot for holding tournaments!  MEN: The purses are beautiful and will make great gifts!  LADIES:  Treat yourselves!!!
