Tennis tournament to benefit Katy Build Project

The 2015 Katy Build tennis tournament will take place on May 22-24 at the Bossier Tennis Center.

The weekend includes meals, Family Kick-Off Night, exhibition games, auction/raffle. The goal is to raise funds for the Katy Build Project that will eventually provide additional housing in Bossier City for first time veteran homeowners.KBuild2

The Katy Build story began in 2011 when Fuller Center for Housing of NWLA partnered with Asbury United Methodist Church in Bossier City. They built a home in honor and memory of Katy Watkins, a servant leader Asbury’s youth group who lost her life along with two others in 2006 in an automobile accident.

Katy was very involved in the church and gave much of her time to making a difference in the lives of those around her. This partnership represents much of what Katy is about – love and service for our fellow neighbor.

This joint partnership would offer such a gift to the Bossier City community. Since 2011, two homes have been constructed on Katy’s Corner, located in the Scott-Dickerson neighborhood in Bossier City.

Funds raised at this year’s tournament will go toward funding future homes in honor and memory of Emily Perdue and Molly Reed in this neighborhood. First Bossier and Simple Church have joined this Katy Build partnership.
