The Cainegels Connection Foundation (CCF) held its annual tennis tournament at Crown Mountain Park on Saturday, Oct. 1 — womens’ doubles — but was rained out on Sunday. The theme for this year’s tournament was “country versus country club.” CCF was started by Jenell Hilderbrand after her son, Caine Albrecht (who also went by Cainegel) was lost to an accidental drug overdose. Despite the weather, “The tennis community still rallied and donated money,” Hildebrand was happy to report. While CCF’s initial tennis tournament fundraiser in 2018 helped get the nonprofit going, these past few years, the proceeds have gone to a scholarship fund awarded to students interested in a career in mental health. Hildebrand’s goal is to raise $5,000 by spring for the scholarship fund. “The scholarships are to encourage others to go into the field of helping others along their path,” she stated. “We lack resources for mental illness and addiction, so I encourage our youth to consider this field of study to help our communities, our state, our nation and our world!” Courtesy photo
