Parrish Cancer Center partner, OMNI Healthcare, is the title sponsor for the Bryan Brothers Exhibition and the First Annual KIWI USTA Men’s Pro Tennis Tournament to be held in Brevard this month.

The Bryan brothers, who last week advanced to the finals of the Australian Open, are the most successful doubles pair of all time with 16 Grand Slam titles, an Olympic gold medal at London in 2012, and the Davis Cup title in 2007. They finished as the ATP World Tour year-end No. 1 doubles team a record 10 times, and reached a record seven consecutive Grand Slam finals in 2005-06.

Not only is this event one of the greatest sporting events to come to the county, it will benefit two charitable foundations--the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation and the Conquer Cancer Foundation, according to Craig Deligdish, M.D, president, OMNI Healthcare and board-certified medical oncologist.

Proceeds will support cancer care, both locally and nationally, for treatment and cancer research. The Parrish Cancer Center, Brevard’s only Commission on Cancer accredited program, opened last fall.

The Bryan Brothers event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18 and the 10-day tournament from Feb. 17-26 at the KIWI Tennis Club in Indian Harbour Beach, where more than fifteen USTA tournaments have been hosted during the past 10 years.

The event, also sponsored by Parrish, will include tennis clinics, an exhibition match, a Pro-Am, the Celebrity Pro-Am with local surf legends C.J. and Damien Hobgood, a meet and greet with celebrities, and more.

General admission to the 10-day tournament is free. Separate tickets are required to the “Battle of the Brothers” event on February 18, seating is limited. Sponsorships begin at $2,500 and include VIP hospitality at the Celebrity Exhibition. Participation in the Pro-Am will be sold at $10,000 per player.
