Who was Linda Netti?
Linda Netti- Our tournament namesake:
Linda Sue Netti was born in August 1965 along with her twin sister Lisa. Linda was born into a large family and the first of many grand babies. She was born in Hollywood, Florida but spent many summers in Jacksonville with her family.
Her grandma Marge was always ecstatic to tell all her friends and family, "The twins are coming! The twins are coming!" Every time the girls would make their way to Jacksonville to visit.
Family was very important to Linda. Nothing came before them. In all the words to describe Linda, compassion has to be the most fitting. Linda loved everyone. If someone wasn't getting along she would find a way to make things right.
Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. She bravely fought her battle undergoing several treatments and therapies until 2012. Throughout that entire time though she never lost hope and always had kept a smile on her face.
Our team has always felt Linda watching over us, directing us, and guiding us to put on a great tournament for people to enjoy and come together in order to share that same compassion for others.
Over the past 4 years we have been able to raise over $40k to help women battling breast cancer. The numbers will never be as important as the gratitude from our sponsors, donors and participants.
