Be sure to watch the short video above.  I'll be playing in  the Guerrant Foundation's super fun 10th Annual Battle of the Sexes tennis match on November 2nd at the Phoenician Resort Tennis Stadium at 6000 E. Camelback Road, Scottsdale, beginning at 1pm.  There is no admission charge.  You don't need to know anything about tennis to enjoy this kid-friendly event.  Cheering for your team is encouraged!  There will be food and drink, music and prizes.

We are raising money to help the poorest of the world's poor through small loans to start businesses.  A tiny loan can help a woman in the developing world start a business and change the lives of herself and her children by providing a regular source of food, clothing, shelter, and education.  It's the first step to ending the downward spiral of crushing poverty.

A group of women tennis pros led by former world #11 Anne Guerrant, Constable Carolyn Lane, and U of A star, Monique Walker, will be playing a group of men who are business and community leaders. They include State Representative Robert Meza, former Cox Communications VP, Ivan Johnson, and Ryan Johnson, head pro at the Camelback Village Racquet and Health Club.
