Research is the Answer!

2023  marks the 24th anniversary of the SenioRITA Tennis Tournament at Sawgrass Country Club. Our all-volunteer team effort ensures that 100% of SenioRITA proceeds go directly to fighting breast cancer through research and patient services.

We have raised over $2.5 million to benefit research and patient services at Mayo Clinic, Baptist Medical Center Beaches, and the Buddy Bus Mobile Mammography Unit.
