The party/tournament benefits Genesis School, which serves at-risk youth in the urban core, providing a quality education so these children can achieve success in those early years before heading off to high school. “At-risk” means that many of the students we serve are homeless, multiple grade levels behind, or have special needs that make them “at-risk” for not finishing the 8th grade, let alone finishing high school. But our caring staff and teachers, combined with strong leadership from our board and community support, have made all the difference. Education is truly the key to success for everyone, and at Genesis, the hard work is paying off, one child at a time! Please come out and support our small school! You are truly changing lives!

Why the tennis theme? Students at Genesis play tennis year-round, thanks to USTA!

Thank you very, very much.
