Not only can these ladies play tennis, they can raise money (and have a lot of fun doing it).  This past fall, this wonderful group of ladies raised a whopping $2,300.

Edward Jones Annual Golf Tournament in memory of Jim Barber
This past fall, this wonderful event has benefited Reelin’ for Research for the past three years and has raised over $43,000. This is in addition to their contribution as our title sponsor. Thank you, Edward Jones!

Charlie’s Lemonade Stand
11-year-old Charlie Ellison came up with the idea to have a lemonade stand to raise money for Reelin’ for Research 3 years ago. He can often be found at local farmers’ markets or in various neighborhoods on the weekends and has raised roughly $7,000. Charlie inspires us all to make a difference!

School “Dress Down” days
Both St. Pius and Canterbury schools have held several “dress down” days in which the students donate at least $1 to wear casual clothing instead of their standard uniforms.  These young philanthropists have raised several hundred dollars for Reelin’ for Research!
