Travelon contributes to Adaptive Adventures charity tennis fundraiser

Travelon and the Godshaw family partner with Adaptive Adventures by matching all donations to help improve the quality of life for veterans, other wheel-chair-bound and disabled athletes.

On Sept. 14, Travelon, travel bag and luggage distributor, and other Chicago area residents mixed it up with the Adaptive Adventures organization veterans and other wheel-chair-bound athletes for an exciting evening of platform tennis, social mingling and charitable giving. The evening included an exhibition played by four top-ranked platform tennis players.

Participants made donations in the sum of $22,500 to Adaptive Adventures, whose mission is to provide progressive outdoor sports opportunities to improve quality of life for children, adults and veterans with physical disabilities and their families. Travelon’s Godshaw family matched those contributions with another $22,500. The grand total of $45,000 will be going toward providing skiing, cycling, kayaking, rock climbing even waterskiing and wake-boarding programs just to name a few.

The event took place at the Wilmette Platform Tennis Club and Club House. Complete with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres the evening was rewarding in the time and laughter shared between community members and the amazing athletes from Adaptive Adventures, a 501© (3) nonprofit organization.
