Serving To Save Babies’ Lives

MatchPoint NYC, Brooklyn, New York


On Sunday, May 3, 2015, NY Tennis Chair Jason Pinsky hosted the 5th Annual New York Tennis Tournament: Serving To Saving Babies’ Lives.

Players arrived at MatchPoint NYC in Brooklyn, New York at 7:30 am for a competitive day of tennis. With a lively Calcutta Auction, the 5th Anniversary raised over $300K, bringing the five year total raised by the tournament to over $1 Million to improve the pediatric emergency care of babies and children throughout the Northeast.

Twenty doubles teams participated in this competitive tournament featuring top business leaders in the tri-state area including Bill Ackman-Pershing Square Capital Management, Rob Pohly of Samlyn Capital, Jeremy Mindich-Scopia Capital Management, Dax Vlassis-Gates Capital Management, Larry Penn-Ellington Financial, John Bader-Halcyon Asset Management and Jeff Zucker-CNN Worldwide. They were joined by additional business leaders and world-ranked players, all of whom made the event a tremendous success.

Congratulations to tournament winners Jeff Appel and Dan Cochrane who ultimately triumphed in the finals against finalists Larry Penn and Jon Pastel.
