The Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF) hosted our most important annual fundraising event on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC.  The day began with a VIP Round Robin Tennis Tournament (held this year at our East Capitol Campus, 200 Stoddert Place SE) and was topped off with an elegant, fun-filled evening of silent and live auctions, awards, and dinner. This million-dollar gala supports WTEF’s academic and athletic enrichment programs for underserved children in Washington.
