Family Circle Cup Trophy Missing
May. 12, 2000
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) _ The Family Circle Cup, which is moving its annual tournament to Charleston, said a $2,000 Waterford Crystal replica of its prize was taken from its Harbour Town office sometime after this year's tournament ended April 23.
``Originally, we did think it was the champion's trophy,'' tournament operations director Mike Finley said. ``It was just a Waterford bowl we put on display.''
The bowl, a smaller version of the one tournament winners receive, was taken as the tournament office moved from its temporary site at the Sea Pines Racquet Club, Finley said. The tournament received the bowl as part of its sponsorship deal with Waterford.
