The Tiernan Kelly 14th annual Tennis Fun Fest held at Hinsdale Racquet Club Aug. 10 raised more than $9,000 for the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation.

The foundation has 55 locations in 19 states and serves more than 13,000 children per month who are going through cancer, providing each with a small toy to distract them from their pain.

For 14 years the Kelly kids have been hosting the event, which was started by Croston when he was 8. He then passed the baton to Mattigan, who later handed it off to Kiernan.

This was the final year of the fundraiser, which has raised more than $80,000 for charity.


Bella Cosa Jewelers, owned by Joe and Amy Molfese of Hinsdale, was accepted for retail firm membership in the American Gem Society.

“We are proud to have Bella Cosa Jewelers join our organization,” said John Carter, president of the society’s board of directors. “The staff at Bella Cosa Jewelers shares the American Gem Society’s commitment to consumer protection through ongoing gemological education and a high standard of business ethics. We encourage anyone shopping for fine jewelry to visit their store and see how they can help you find the perfect piece of jewelry.”

The American Gem Society has been dedicated to proven ethics, knowledge and consumer protection since 1934. Only one in 20 retail jewelers has chosen to meet the exacting standards required for membership. In addition to satisfying the American Gem Society’s criteria, including recertification on a yearly basis, members have shown a proven commitment to their community and the highest standards of ethical practice.
