Women's Tennis Helps Out at HeartShare's Spring Gala and Silent Auction
NEW YORK - The Queens College women's tennis team recently took time away from their spring season to travel to the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel and assist at HeartShare's Spring Gala and Silent Auction event.
HeartShare assists individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities, and provides vital services to children and families.
Members of head coach Alan Nagel's Knights assisted guests at several silent-auction tables, explaining the bid process, guiding the bidders in sign-up procedures, and also aided with the wrapping and distribution of items sold. Sports collectibles, tickets and vacation getaways were just some of the prizes auctioned off to support the great cause.
"It was a really fun night for a worthy cause," noted Nagel, now in his 33rd season as mentor of the QC program.
"I am very glad I got to go with my team to help fundraise for a cause that helps those in need," mentioned senior women's tennis player, Taylor Barber (Salt Lake City, Utah).
