“There was such an incredible response to the PINC Open Tennis Tournament last year both from participants, as well as fans coming out to cheer the teams on that we knew we had to hold the tournament again this year,” said Annie Domingos, Current President & Founder of PINC. “We encourage tennis enthusiasts of all skill levels to sign up today. This is a wonderful opportunity to have some fun and give back to our community.”
Philanthropy Inspired by the Needs of our Community (PINC), a Fresno-based nonprofit with a mission of helping other nonprofits, announced that Holy Cross Center for Women will be the beneficiary of its June 6 fundraiser.
Since 2009, PINC has raised a total of $189,500 through its annual fundraising events that have benefitted groups including Transitions Children's Services last year, Catholic Charities Diocese of Fresno in 2013 and Break the Barriers in 2012.
