Tony Page, the driving force behind Page's Okra Grill in Mount Pleasant, was also an avid tennis player. He passed away earlier this year and his widow, Kelly Page, is raising money for a 10-by-28-foot backboard at Maybank Tennis Center in his memory. Kelly and Tony met at the tennis center, playing on a mixed doubles team and eventually got engaged there. “Tony accepted all invitations to play and made friends with everyone he met on and off the courts throughout Charleston County,” Kelly Page said.
Kelly Page and Charleston Parks Conservancy have a goal of raising $10,450 for this project by mid-September with a dedication ceremony tentatively scheduled for Oct. 17 at the tennis center. The Charleston Parks Conservancy is accepting donations for this project on its website at www.budurl.com/5udp.
