The venue for the 2015 Tennis Ball, as in the past several years, was the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton. The Tennis Ball, by the way, gets its name from the fact that An Achievable Dream got its start as a summer program, teaching school skills and life skills, and the Peter Johns, Diana Gulotta, and Jeff Clemons were part of the Rotary Club's setup team on Friday. Diana Gulotta and Bill Ziglar are shown setting up the Rotary table that welcomes guests as they come to the Tennis Ball.  Diana was this year's Tennis Ball Chair for the Club. Scott Stolldorf and Bill Ziglar wrestle with a display banner in the setup of the silent auction room.
The silent auction hall was packed on the evening of the Tennis Ball. Appropriately enough, Danny Carroll is shown here among Dinner at the Tennis Ball was gourmet fare.
The live auction took place in the dining hall.  Attendance at this event was around the one-thousand mark. This is Nhu and Kevin Yeargin. This table included President Pat Resto, past president Elizabeth McCoury visiting us from Seattle, Danny Carroll, and John and Mary Ellen Frantz. Automobiles that were part of the live auction included all price ranges.  Beyond the balloons in this photo you can glimpse an exotic BMW i8 hybrid sports car.
Here is a collection of Peninsula Club Rotarians, dressed in their finery for the Tennis Ball.  They are Jeff Stodghill, Adam Duncan, Danny Carroll, Debra Flores, Pat Resto, Paul Szabo, Ray Spencer, Elizabeth McCoury, Steve Adams, John Frantz, and Kevin Yeargin.
