The R Baby Foundation is America’s first and only nonprofit organization with the mission of saving infants’ lives by improving pediatric care, and to date, has donated $8 million to hospital programs and saved more than one million lives. The charity’s tennis tournament was created in 2010, by Jason Pinsky, “Six years ago I saw the foundation was doing a golf event, and I suggested we should do a tennis event. The first year was sort of a test and it went well, and the demand has been high ever since. We bring together a great group of competitive guys for a great cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the Foundation is proud to have raised over $500,000 for childcare initiatives including telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums.

With unparalleled dedication to club members, employees, and the community, Druzhinsky’s complex has quickly become the primary venue for families, professional athletes, and cause driven charity events in the area. “They are great to work with,” points out Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and one of the runners of this year’s gala. “He has really gone out of his way to invite us to work with them, and that has helped make the event really special in the two years we have had it here. The foundation does a great job in keeping its expenses low to ensure that the money raised goes towards the cause, and MatchPoint’s generosity helps make that possible.”
