Dothan Pro Classic Needs Community Support for 2015

More Video...

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.
