Children Helping Children Junior Singles Tournament

ANNUAL CHARITY TENNIS TOURNAMENT: Opportunities to get involved

The 2018 Red Balloon Children Helping Children Tennis Tournament, benefiting Children's Health, will be held September 22 - 23 at High Point Park Tennis Center in Plano. Celebrating 28 years, the event for boys and girls ages 8 to 18 will include prizes, kid-friendly activities, a silent auction and more.

The players and their families raise money to support the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, where more than 1,000 new patients are cared for each year, making it the largest childhood cancer and blood disease center in the region.
About our Cause
Twenty-eight years ago, Pam and Ken Sumrow started a tradition of philanthropy that is still going strong.  Each September, the Sumrow family, in partnership with Children’s Health, put on the Red Balloon Children Helping Children Tennis Tournament to raise money for the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Health. In total, and with the help of many volunteers, the event has raised $3.2 million for pediatric cancer research and program.
