The Cornerstone men's tennis team took to the courts today in its first Night of Nets match to fight malaria. The biggest crowd Cornerstone tennis has ever seen turned out to help raise money and support the team. Through the generaous donations of the crowd, enough money was raised to provide over 100 mosquito nets to those most in need. This represents 100 lives that may be saved, and possibibly an entire community that could be transformed.
