Congratulations to Mosa-"A Serving for Tennis Champions"
A Serving for Tennis 2016
A Serving for Tennis 2016 was a huge success! 300 people enjoyed delicious food from 15 area restaurants and live music from the Dantones at the Cadre Building downtown. Attendees voted for their favorite dish of the evening and Mosa won the honors with their delicious Asian pork slider! The event netted over $40,000, which will directly impact Tennis Memphis's NJTL programming. These programs provide tennis and education services to under served youth in Memphis. A huge thank you to our co-chairs Dave and Kara Joerger, Kevin Kane, Brian Bendersky, and Anne Wulff, sponors, in-kind sponsors, and volunteers. We'd like to specially thank Sherri Nischwitz, Sharon Dertien, and Karen Franklin, who played major roles on the planning and hosting of the event. This event couldn't happen with out the generosity of everyone involved with their time and resources! Thank you for helping us reach the youth of Memphis in these crucial areas.
Look who dropped by!
