Chaired by Billie Jean King, the event will include a cocktail reception, dinner, live auction, and tickets to the Open’s evening matches in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Seniors Fitness Benefit

The annual Seniors Fitness Benefit supports our Seniors Fitness program, which offers free tennis lessons, revitalizing yoga, and walking programs to seniors in parks throughout New York City. CityParks Seniors Fitness promotes healthy minds and bodies by bringing our senior neighbors into their local parks for vital social interaction, life-changing physical activity, and community activities — all free of charge.

CityParks Golf Classic

City Parks Foundation’s Golf Classic tournament brings together celebrities and professional athletes alongside avid golfers from the NYC business community in support of our free sports programming and the students we serve.

CityParks Golf encourages fitness, healthy lifestyle choices, self esteem, and confidence while teaching students the importance of sportsmanship and discipline.  Each year, the Golf Classic has helped keep programs free of charge for more than 13,000 young people.
