It was determined that the "Challenge" would be an annual fall weekend event, focusing on tennis, with the Pinnacle Country Club as the designated site. As the Crisis Center was a United Way participant, special permission was obtained from United Ways in Northwest Arkansas to hold the event during their designated "black-out" period, with the agreement that some overage money would be divided among the United Ways that support the Center.

The "founding" sponsors were: Ambassador Cards, American Greetings, Dow Brands, Gillette and Lever Brothers. Additional income was received from a silent auction, clinics, t-shirts, ticket and program sales. Our goal for 1992 was to raise $30,000; actual amount raised was nearly $65,000.
