I just wanted to take a minute to acknowledge the support and publicity we've gotten in the past few weeks in an effort to make the fundraiser a success. We recently made it in the NYTime's side project: The Local (Ft. Greene & Clinton Hill): Local Youths Learn Tennis for Free. My favorite part?
“It’s just fun!” said seven-year-old Madison Francis, a participant who heard about the program through her school. “It gives you energy.”
Her mother, Amore Philip, is also a fan. “It gets her away from the computer,” she said. “She even wants to practice in the house.”
The fundraiser has also been published on the NY Social Diary, Socially Superlative, and Bedstuy Patch online calendars, which helps us reach a wider audience of potential funders.
