The young athletes have shown a lot of potential, regularly playing and beating players three times their age on the court, yet they can't afford to pay for club memberships, tournament fees, and camp tuitions.People who attended the food and prayer fundraiser paid $25 each to help the Anatole brothers."I appreciate greatly what the community is doing, it's a beautiful thing," says the boys' father, Ira Anatole.
