Thursday night kicks off the four day fundraising marathon for two of the Governors One On One Mentoring Programs in the East. But before the tennis pros swing into action, a little bit of practice is underway for the boys and girls who'll be catching those balls breaking record speeds to raise money during the "Power of One" Tennis tournament. We talked one kid who says he hopes just shuffling across the courts at the Courtside Athletic Club while the pro's are playing will help his tennis game. $50,000.00 is the fundraising goal for the "Power of One" Tennis tournament. Remember you can get tickets in advance for the finals, or you can catch all of the action live right here on WITN 7 beginning at noon. And remember to come out Thursday night at 8 p.m. for the special benefit concert featuring "Blue County" at ECU's Wright Auditorium. Tickets are $12 and proceeds will go to mentoring programs of Eastern Carolina. For tickets call the ECU ticket office at 1-800-ECU-ARTS.
