The Down the Line and Beyond Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to develop and strengthen inner-city communities in Philadelphia through the sport of tennis, will host its 9th Annual Gala on Saturday, March 16, 2019 from 6-10pm at The Cynwyd Club. Former French Open Champion and current ESPN analyst Luke Jensen will serve as host for this popular event. Proceeds from the Annual Gala, Down the Line’s major fundraiser, have enabled the organization to provide 5,500 hours of free tennis, education, and character-building programs for local children in 2018, while creating employment opportunities for 20 coaches hired and trained from within the neighborhoods served. Later this spring, Down the Line will also unveil brand new tennis courts in the Poplar section of Philadelphia providing access to its programs to thousands of adults and children. In partnership with the USTA Foundation and American Express, this project is truly a community initiative, designed with and for the direct benefit of the Poplar residents.
With the newly-renovated Cynwyd Club as the beautiful backdrop, guests will enjoy an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and dinner, with a live DJ and dancing to get everyone on their feet!
