Pink Power

ZIONSVILLE, INDIANA – While you can usually find the Zionsville girls tennis team near the top of the state rankings, there are other things more dear to their hearts. After meeting with me and Vera Bradley co-founder Patricia R. Miller in March, they decided to ‘adopt’ the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer and dedicate their entire season’s fund raising efforts to the cause. (Here they are sporting their Pinwheel Pink Totes during their visit.) With the pink cupcakes they sold at home tennis matches, these girls ranked very high in donor scoring!

My son Noah and I stopped by to send them off to the state tennis finals with big cheers and best wishes. Congratulations, Coach Pat and girls for your great accomplishment at state and for being such great philanthropists – you are in inspiration to us all! (See their story in the June issue of High School Sports magazine.
