Tennis for a Good Cause

The ladies of these Eastern Suburb's charities sometimes get ignored by the press but they really do work wonders.
Unlike today's multi-million dollar charities that have a range of well paid executives and workers, these women beg, steal and borrow anything they can lay their hands on order to raise funds.
They receive nothing in return except that warm and fuzzy feeling they have done the right thing. And so the annual St Luke's Hospital (in Potts Point) charity tennis day again raised tens of thousands of dollars for a good cause. Held at Lady Burrell's magnificent pile Rosemount in Woollahra(once the family abode of the Lloyd-Jones family of David Jones department store fame), a beautiful sunny day and possibly one of Sydney's nicest private lawn tennis courts made for the ideal afternoon.
