Serving Aces for Sarcoma
When the late Scott L. King’s oldest daughter Courtney welcomed the 250 guests to the SLK Sacrcoma Foundation fundraiser at Bloomfield Open Hunt she quoted an African proverb: “Go alone to go fast. Go together to last.” And indeed, the sixth annual event – comprising a youth tournament, a pro exhibition and clinic, and a party – evidenced a whole lot of relationships spearheaded by King’s widow Julie and his brother Keith. Scott’s boyhood friend Craig Wittus was the key to the new-this-year professional components. He works in Florida with tennis pro Aaron Krickstein who plays exhibition matches with fellow tennis pro Jimmy Arias, now an ESPN announcer. Their participation enhanced the event.
