Thank You Gala Sponsors!
All of us at InnerCity Tennis Foundation are grateful to our many corporate and table sponsors this year. We are humbled by your generosity and grateful for your partnership in supporting our work with underserved youth in Minneapolis.
Thank You Gala Volunteers!
We are also thankful for our Gala Chair, Virginia de la Riva, and her team of volunteers. So much went into organizing this year’s event, and Virginia and her team did an outstanding job getting everything ready and set up, including the Silent Auction. We’d like to extend sincere thanks to our volunteer gala photographers, John Walsh and Sridhar Thayur, who captured all the fun Saturday evening, including the red carpet walk, which was a huge hit with our guests.

At InnerCity Tennis we believe it’s critical to make our programs broadly accessible through no-charge programs and scholarships for our fee-based programs. Donor contributions ensure that all youth, regardless of their financial circumstances, can take advantage of these transformational opportunities. This year, we plan to again impact more than 5,000 Minneapolis youth, and we couldn’t do this important work without you, our many InnerCity Tennis players, volunteers, arents, and donors.
