Two local high school students are lacing up their sneakers and getting their tennis rackets ready for a junior tennis charity event to raise funds for Our Place Society this weekend.

This is the second time Tony Liu and Noah Bettauer, St. Michael’s University School and Oak Bay High school students, are hosting the junior tennis charity event at the Oak Bay Recreation Centre.

Earlier this summer, the duo hosted a similar event and donated $200 to Our Place. The teenagers anticipate there will be anywhere from 15 to 20 junior players participating in this weekend’s event. For more information or to participate, email tony.liu@smus.bc.ca.

Our Place Society serves Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable — working poor, mentally and physically challenged, addicted and the homeless.
