R Baby’s 6th Anniversary New York Tennis Tournament

Brooklyn, New York


On Saturday, April 16, 2016, NY Tennis Chair Jason Pinsky hosted the 6th Annual New York Tennis Tournament: Serving To Saving Babies’ Lives.

Hosted at MatchPoint NYC in Brooklyn, New York, players enjoyed a competitive day of tennis. The event, including a highly anticipated and lively Calcutta Auction, raised close to $250K. Over the last six years, this event has raised almost $1.5 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, David Einhorn-Greenlight Capital, Rob Pohly-Samlyn Capital, Jeremy Mindich-Scopia Capital Management, Bruce Richards-Marathon Asset Management, James Majeski- Majeski Foundation and Larry Penn-Ellington Financial. They were joined by additional business leaders and world-ranked players, all of whom made the event a tremendous success.

Congratulations to tournament winners Jeffrey Appel and Adam El Mihdawy who ultimately triumphed in the finals against finalists Marc Powers and Rob Pohly.

Thank you to our generous sponsors: Pershing Square Capital Management, Sidley Austin LLP., Bloomberg Philanthropies, Marathon Asset Management, Scopia Capital Management, Citco, Houlihan Lokey and Majeski Foundation.
