On Tuesday, August 28, 2018, City Parks Foundation will welcome guests to the CityParks Tennis Benefit, honoring Maurice R. Greenberg. This benefit dinner helps CPF provide free tennis instruction to 7,000 NYC children at 38 citywide parks annually.

The evening begins at 5:00 pm with a cocktail reception followed by dinner in the newly minted Overlook club with rooftop views of Arthur Ashe Stadium and the spectacular new Louis Armstrong Stadium. Benefit tickets include premium courtside or loge tickets to attend US Open matches in Arthur Ashe that evening.


Maurice R. Greenberg

Chairman, The Starr Foundation

City Parks Foundation is proud to honor Maurice R. Greenberg, Chairman of The Starr Foundation and Chairman of Starr Companies, a global insurance and investment organization. Under Mr. Greenberg’s leadership, The Starr Foundation has grown to become one of the largest private foundations in the United States, making more than $3 billion in grants to support medicine and healthcare, education, human needs, public policy, culture and the environment since the Foundation was established in 1955. We are thrilled to present Mr. Greenberg with the Vitas Gerulaitis Community Service Award for his philanthropic commitment to improving lives in New York City, and especially for his support of CityParks Tennis, which reaches nearly 7,000 kids every summer, ensuring that free lessons and equipment are available to all.
