MY Gift to Kids Fundraising Campaign Underway

September 30, 2013 02:04 PM

Twelve Districts within the USTA/Midwest Section, in cooperation with the Midwest Youth Tennis & Education Foundation, have selected 12 different junior tennis programs or associations for the foundation’s 2013 MY Gift to Kids Tennis fundraising campaign taking place Oct. 1-31.  The foundation’s campaign is designed to help raise support for local junior tennis programs in the USTA/Midwest Section.

All programs were selected based on their use of tennis to positively influence youth in their respective communities.  The MY Gift to Kids Tennis annual fundraiser calls on tennis and community supporters alike to make monetary donations toward their local tennis program.  Junior programs often rely on volunteers and donations to help maintain and grow the services they provide to youth in their communities.  Following is a list of all programs selected for this year’s campaign:
