Match Set: The Chamber Visits the Arthur Ashe Center February 14, 2008

The Business After Hours hosted by the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education Center was absolutely wonderful and the food, graciously provided to the center by Restaurant Associates, was simply amazing. The space was filled to capacity with people enjoying the refreshments, enjoying the center and enjoying the company of other business people. During our lively networking, we learned about the mission of this organization: to create and promote opportunities to improve the quality of life of young people through tennis and education. At that point, they threw open the doors to the courts and we were treated to the site of eight full indoor tennis courts being used by children of all ages. They were working hard and having a good time in the process. There were a few games going on, but mostly there were dozens of volunteers teaching the children how to play and giving them a thorough workout on the courts. If you want to see charitable donations in action doing good in the community, please check them out at 4842 Ridge Avenue or online at www.AsheTennis.org – oh, and feel free to donate – they would certainly appreciate it.
