The second part will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Inn at DePauw's conference room and will consist of a buffet dinner. Internationally renowned blues and soul singer Tad Robinson will perform starting at 8 p.m.
Interested participants can join in for one or both events. Registration for the tennis mixer is $25, the dinner and concert is $50 or both for $75.
Scott Riggle, the president of the Team Riggle Foundation, was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's disease in September of 2010. With the help of his wife Jenny and their friends Keith and Annette Waterman, they have started the Team Riggle Foundation in an effort to raise money and awareness to fight this disease. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease, a degenerative condition which, among other things, leads to tremors, rigidity and loss of muscle control.
Scott Riggle is a patient at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. and plans to support the Mayo Clinic researchers with the funds raised by various events the Team Riggle Foundation puts on.
For more information or to sign up for the events, email Jenny Riggle at email@example.com. To register, include full name of attendee, additional guests, address, phone number and registration fee.
