The 34th annual event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity over the years.

(CCR) will be hosting its 34th annual Tennis Pro-Am Invitational to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure on Aug. 3-5.

The award-winning Pro-Am is the largest in the Southeast and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities.

This year's event will begin on Friday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. with a Lowcountry Boil and Auction Gala. The evening will feature musical entertainment by Banks and Shane, “Bottomless” Gala Sweet Tea Vodka Cocktails courtesy of Sinless Cocktails as well as the silent and live auction.

The live auction will feature a number of high-end luxury prizes including an NFL Falcons experience, a South African photo safari, a personal CCR tennis mixer, a box for one 2013 Braves game, a week-long stay at a deluxe Pawleys Island vacation home and many more. CCR is continuing to accept auction donations. Those who would like to make a donation visit the website to see how you can help support Bert’s Big Adventure. The silent auction has already begun bidding and winners need not be present to win. Silent auction bidders can go online to view auction items and bid on them via smart phone or text message.

On Saturday, Aug. 4 at 8:15 a.m., the Pro-Am will begin which features some of the best professionals in the South alongside CCR members. Matches will end by 4 p.m. on Saturday with semi-finals and finals taking place on Sunday, Aug. 5 between 8 a.m. and noon. This year the tournament will also feature an outside vendor market with a portion of their proceeds going to Bert’s Big Adventure as well. Lunch will be available for purchase in the courtyard at CCR. The tournament is free for the pubic to attend.
