To Serve…and Volley

Uncategorized Posted Sep 12, 2012 by Kevin Kosh

Right on the heels of an epic US Open, we’re throwing out a last minute call out here and invitation from your friends at CHEN PR to participate in a great charity event.

CHEN PR is joining with a number of Boston-area VCs, Entrepreneurs and non-profit org Tenacity, for a doubles tennis fundraiser on Thursday, 9/13.  Located at the prestigious grass courts in Chestnut Hill (564 Hammond St Newton, MA), the event boasts great entertainment and activities, including clinics given by Tennis Icon/Hall of Famer Nick Bollettieri – coach and mentor to such international superstars as Agassi, Becker, Courier, Hingis, Jankovic, Rios, Seles, Sharapova and the Williams sisters.

If you haven’t heard of Tenacity, it is a fantastic charity that since its founding in 1999 has served over 20,000 Boston students who otherwise would lack a safe, productive and healthy after-school and summer environment.  Tenacity offers high-quality literacy and tennis programming not only build academic skills and improve fitness, but also foster social engagement and personal confidence in young people to help them succeed in school and life.

BSG Team Ventures is hosting the tourney. Sponsors include Silicon Valley Bank, Burns & Levinson LLP, Grant Thornton LLP, Xconomy, Weston Racquet Club and CHEN PR.

A couple of spots might still be available, so act fast and sign up here: Your donation of $175 gives you access to tennis, cocktails, dinner, networking and fun.

Anything else, just put it on the Underhill’s tab…
