For over fifty years, Adoption Guild of Southern Orange County has proudly supported Holy Family Services Adoption & Foster Care Agency. With the hope of giving every child an opportunity to have a loving family, dedicated Adoption Guild volunteers work each year to present two major fundraising events; the Roy Emerson Adoption Guild Tennis Classic and the Patroness Tea, with all proceeds benefiting Holy Family Services.
Comprised of approximately 50 members, the Adoption Guild offers a wonderful combination of volunteer and social opportunities in and around the Newport Beach community. Since 1961, Adoption Guild has generated over $4.2 million in funding, contributing to approximately 3000 adoptions.
Emerson holds 28 Grand Slam titles and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1982.
He remains the only male player to win singles and doubles titles in all four Grand Slam events including 28 Grand Slam titles, 12 singles titles and 16 doubles titles.
Roy and his wife Joy currently reside in Newport Beach and Gstaad Switzerland.
