A beautiful Colorado day greeted about 78 competitors to the 2nd Annual Carolyn Lucero Memorial Tennis Classic at Berkeley Park. The July 23-24 tennis tournament drew players from all skill levels and raised over $8,000 for the Stout Street Foundation. Silent auction items included tennis rackets, jerseys, and photographs autographed by Andre Agassi, Billie Jean King, and Maria Sharapova.
A big part of the reason the tournament has received such generous support and participation can be credited to the members of the Berkeley Park Tennis Club. The Berkeley Park players have really taken the tournament under their wings and have done a great job in supporting and promoting the event. Their involvement has helped make the tournament a continuing success and a fun event for both participants and spectators.
The Stout Street Foundation was incorporated in 1976 by Bradley R. Lucero Jr., Lillian Potter, and Jim Doyle. Mr. Lucero was in a halfway house in Denver when his good friend, Father Tom Dowd, recommended he visit a long term drug and alcohol therapeutic community in California called Delancy Street.
Impressed by what the program offered, Mr. Lucero set out to open his own version of a therapeutic community. From the start, Stout Street adopted the motto of “People Helping People Help Themselves.”
Over the years SSF has grown and expanded from a small house in Denver on Stout Street with just a handful of residents to a newly refurbished hotel in Commerce City accommodating over 125 residents in a self contained community.
