The Dothan Pro Classic tennis tournament has brought prestige and financial aid to the city for 14 years.

The tournament has always boasted a large purse, or winnings.

But in 2009 they lost the $20,000 title sponsorship from “Movie Gallery.”

The Wiregrass Foundation helped with the $20,000 deficit until another sponsor came along.

That funding ran out in 2012 and they're still searching for a new title sponsor.

Event Organizer Angela Turner says the tournament wouldn't be possible without community support.

For next year organizers say they will need about $10,000 more in sponsorships.

If they can't make their goal, they will have to let the United States Tennis Association know by October.
