Michel Perrigaud, who many of you may know as the founder of Michel’s Bakery, was badly injured in a horse-riding accident earlier this year. He’s much better now, but still has a long way to go on his road to recovery.Needless to say, his medical bills are staggering. To help, Michel’s friends have put together a benefit tennis tournament, to be held at the Homestead Court Club in Edwards on Sunday, Aug. 20 starting at 9 a.m.
Participants can play with local pros, enjoy a delicious lunch, buy great stuff at a silent auction, and hear great music from Pat Hamilton.Tennis and lunch is $350 per couple or $200 for singles. Lunch only is $100 per person. All contributions are tax deductible.Sponsors of the benefit are Booth Creek Holdings, 1st Bank, the Homestead Court Club and the Swift Eagle Foundation.
