2017 MTEF Tennis Ball Dinner & Auction Gala

The Milwaukee Tennis & Education Foundation (MTEF) is gearing up for its 19th Annual MTEF Tennis Ball, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 7 in the Ballroom at the Pfister Hotel. The event, featuring dinner along with silent and live auctions, will bring together many special guests including partners, supporters, local dignitaries and community leaders.

The Ball, MTEF’s largest fundraiser of the year, supports all aspects of MTEF’s nationally recognized TEAM programming. This year’s committee, headed by Debbie Schifano, has set a goal of at least $130,000 profit and 300 attendees.

MTEF is one of more than 400 National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) chapters in the US. NJTL, originally called National Junior Tennis League, was founded in 1969 by tennis legend Arthur Ashe, his UCLA tennis teammate, Charles Pasarell and a good friend, entrepreneur Sheridan Snyder to promote the sport among urban youth who might otherwise not be exposed to the game.
