21st Annual Tennis for Tots @ LA Tennis Club
Sep 21 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

All player levels welcome! Round robin doubles tournament play from 1 to 4 pm, followed by a BBQ and awards. Choose your own partner, or be paired based on your experience level, and you will play four abbreviated sets. Bring your racket and let’s serve up some fun for the kids!

Tennis for Tots is held in memory of David and Lynn Angell, who were tragically killed on the first plane to crash into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. David, creator of the successful television show “Frasier” and “Wings,” and his wife, Lynn, were long-time advocates of abused and abandoned children. Since their passing, The Angell Foundation has continued on with the couples’ vision and has generously supported this event and the Alliance’s programs.

Thank you to The Angell Foundation, City National Bank, Rosemary & Peter Casey, Jim Preminger, Beth Roberts, Bill Tanner, Brad Johnson, Mark Pedowitz/the CW, CBS/Paramount, LATC, Chris Brearton, Robert Sloan, Michael Skloff, Steven Peterman, David Sadkin, and our many other past sponsors, players and donors for contributing to the event over the years.

History of the Adoption Day Program & National Adoption Day

The Los Angeles Adoption Day Program started in 1997 as a partnership between the Alliance, the Los Angeles Juvenile Court (Children’s Court), DCFS, and Public Counsel. The innovative program began as a solution to the overwhelming number of foster child adoptions stuck in a backlog. Together, we cleared the backlog and in doing so, established a national model for performing adoptions. Since 2000, National Adoption Day has joined 50,000 children with permanent families. Learn more.

National Adoption Day, typically held in November, is a joyous event celebrating the forever families across the nation. Four hundred cities in all 50 states perform about 5,000 adoptions in one day. Local Adoption Days are held in Los Angeles throughout the year every few months. Our next local Adoption Day takes place on Friday, May 10th, 2019.
