Local Community

One of the founding principles of Triangle Tennis Club is to give back to the community in which we live. Below are just some of the organizations and events around the Triangle which TTC either participated in or contributed to since our inception in 2004.  We plan to continue our commitment to these and other charitable organizations for years to come.

  GLBT CommUNITY Alliance at NC State University
Founded in 1988, the GLBT-CA is the primary voice for GLBT students at North Carolina's largest university. Their mission is to cultivate a campus environment that provides a safe and positive college experience for all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. TTC has named GLBT-CA our beneficiary for several of the past CMTC tournamnets, and is proud of the relationship we have established with the group.

  Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE)
Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) is the country's largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults.  While TTC members range in age from the early 20's to over 60, we realize that none of us are getting younger, and appreciate such programs will be available to help us all later in our later years.

  Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project is a national organizaion which servces to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. Given North Carolina's large military prescense, TTC has helped support this project through various donations.

  Alliance of AIDS Services - Carolina (AAS-C)
The Alliance serves people with HIV/AIDS and their families through direct services such as providing transportation to medical appointments, providing housing and skilled nursing services. AAS-C also offers the Triangle community education and prevention programs and advocacy for those afflicted
with and affected by HIV/AIDS.


 

  AIDS Walk and Ride
An AAS-C sponsored event, the AIDS Walk and Ride is held each year in May, to raise support and awareness for those living with HIV/AIDS.


  Drag Bingo
Held several times each year at various locations around the Triangle, Drag Bingo is another event which serves as a fundraiser to support AAS-C. As it's name suggests, this is bingo, but with several twists to the game (everyone must stand whenever "O-69" is called), as well as many unique personalities and characters associated with the event.


  NC PrideFest
NC Pridefest is an event held in the Triangle area each Fall. Pridefest's serves several key missions: to promote unity and visibility among lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgendered people, to promote a positive image through programs and public activities that foster an awareness of our past struggles, to be recognized as an important and talented sector of our
diverse state, and to support and encourage HIV/AIDS education, breast cancer awareness and basic health education.


  A Safer Place Youth Network (ASPYN)
ASPYN is a coalition of Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Questioning and Allied (LGBTQ&A) youth ages 13 to 23, and adults working together to make Wake County & the Triangle a safe, healthy, and life affirming place for LGBTQ&A Youth. ASPYN is a program of Triangle Community Works, a coalition
of organizations, individuals, and projects serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied communities in the Research Triangle Park area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.


  Toys for Tots
Run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, the mission of the Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December of each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
