Twenty players participated in the round robin tennis tourney at the Vineyard Tennis Center on March 18 and raised $940 for the Family to Family Cambodia (FTFC) program. The Island-based organization, founded by Oak Bluffs harbormaster Todd Alexander, provides financial support for Cambodian children’s education.

Mr. Alexander hosted the event as a final fundraiser for FTFC before he left on a trip to Cambodia on Tuesday to visit some of the families the program sponsors and three schools he raised funds to build through the Rural Schools Project run by American Assistance for Cambodia.
