SWAT holds an annual tennis tournament dedicated to assisting our local Salvation Army, and for over 10 years the major business sponsor for this charity tournament has been Waynesboro Florist owned by Webber Payne. Mr. Payne’s contribution covers the costs of running the tournament allowing 100% of all entry fees and other contributions to go the charity. All proceeds are divided evenly between the Waynesboro and Staunton Salvation Army organizations.
