Zepf Center to combat mental illness with “Serve Up an Ace”
The Zepf Center will host “Serve Up an Ace,” a tennis tournament and silent auction, on Friday, February 1, 2008 from 7 to 11pm at the Laurel Hill Swim and Tennis Club, 2222 Cass Road in Toledo, OH. Tickets are $25 per person, $45 per couple and are 60 percent tax deductible.
“The community has been very supportive of this event; we are so pleased that our agency and more specifically, our clients, will be receiving the benefits of the positive response the community is giving us,” said Jennifer Moses, Chief Executive Officer for Zepf Center, a non-profit organization which provides quality services for Lucas County adults with severe and persistent mental health disorders.
There will be a silent auction, door prizes, 50/50 raffles, hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and entertainment provided by a disc jockey. Those who attend but do not wish to participate in the tennis tournament are invited to watch the competition and enjoy the food and music. Anyone who would like to attend can receive a registration form by calling Christina Baskey at 419-841-7701 ext. 207 or by going to www.zepfcenter.org.
Proceeds from “Serve Up an Ace” will go to the Elizabeth A. Zepf Foundation in support of mental health recovery and vocational development for Zepf Center consumers. The center and foundation are named for Elizabeth A. Zepf, a staunch advocate for consumers with mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia. Mrs. Zepf is dedicated to each consumer’s right to receive quality care, regardless of ability to pay.
The Zepf Center is funded in part by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Lucas County
