You’re invited to an evening of fun and fundraising where guests will enjoy an elegant dinner, bid for an exciting silent and live auction, and dance the night away. The Tennis Ball, which is the kick-off event for the VIPS Tennis Tournament the following evening, is Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) primary fundraiser of the year and was awarded “Special Tennis Event of the Year” by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Southern in 2016! Sponsors include Brown-Forman, Phoenix Process Equipment Co., Kosair Charities & more. The funds generated through The Tennis Ball will help support the quality programming that VIPS provides to blind and visually impaired children throughout Kentucky and Indiana.
VIPS is a statewide agency in Kentucky and Indiana which provides early intervention services to Kentucky and Indiana's youngest children with blindness and low vision. Services include evaluations, in-home visits, and access to resources that help parents and caregivers better understand and support their child with visual impairment. VIPS was the first and continues to be the only nonprofit agency in Kentucky and Indiana providing vision-specific services to this population of children. The critical, life-changing intervention services that VIPS provides are available at no cost to families due to the generosity of individual donors, grants from foundations, and proceeds from special events like the Tennis Ball.
Saturday, May 19 at 6:30pm at The Louisville Boat Club.
