Tuesday, September 18, 2007

BEAUMONT — The CHRISTUS Pro-Celebrity Classic, presented by Texas State Bank and sponsored by Port Arthur’s Motiva refinery, will be rescheduled as a result of the impact of Hurricane Humberto.

The Ford Arena event featuring Anna Kournikova, Chanda Rubin, Dr. Phil McGraw, Stone Phillips, Pete Sampras, Todd Martin, John Lucas and KFDM-TV’s Dan Gresham is on hold until a later date.

“We extend our sympathy to the residents who suffered as a result of Hurricane Humberto and recognize it is in the best interest of the fans, sponsors and participants to allow the area to fully recover from the aftermath before bringing this first year event to Southeast Texas,” said Tim Stallard, event producer, in a released statement Monday.

“This is the first time in our company’s eleven year history of producing sports and entertainment events across the country that we have had to reschedule an event.

”Stallard added that he hopes to have a new date announced later this week.

All tickets sold for the Friday, Sept. 21 tennis event at Ford Arena will be honored for the rescheduled date. Anyone wishing to receive a ticket refund may do so by contacting the location where they purchased their tickets.
