The tournament raised upwards of $3,400, which will be split between the Jamestown Medical Fund and the Jamestown Recreation Department. The tournament is held each year in memory of Roger Chase who was a friend, teacher, mentor, tennis professional, and much more to all who knew him. Roger died in 2004 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Barbara Lundy, Steve Heath and Carol Chase Tournament Committee
