The Rockport-Fulton Middle School (RFMS) tennis team is hosting an Up All Night Tennis-A-Thon fundraiser from 7 p.m. – 7 a.m. beginning Friday, Dec. 10 at the Rockport-Fulton High School (RFHS) tennis courts.

The team is looking to raise at least $5,000 to fund new equipment and uniforms. In addition, 25% of the funds raised will be given to the Aransas County Education Foundation.

This event is open to all 7th and 8th grade RFMS students.

They will be paired with members of the RFHS tennis team and will compete against each other in various tennis activities.

Participating students will need to collect pledges from either a business or individual to sponsor their fundraising through the night.

Prizes will be awarded to students who raise the most money.

Food and drinks will also be provided throughout the night.

For more information about fundraising, or to help volunteer, contact RFHS Head Tennis Coach John Loyd at 361-945-5071 or email
