The Real Estate Board of New York hosted its 27th annual Pro-Am Tennis Tournament on September 3, 2014 at Sportime located at Randall’s Island. Members who participated in the tournament spent “a day with the champions”, paired with professional tennis players. Following the competition, guests were invited to join in for the afternoon tennis clinic.
The proceeds from this annual event went to The Gift of Life Foundation in honor of our friend and well respective REBNY Member Steve Siegel’s wife, Wendy Siegel. Wendy has been fighting leukemia.
