Amundi Pioneer was proud to sponsor the Annual All Star Tennis Charity Event hosted by Cliff Drysdale on Tuesday, March 20th at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne. Serena Williams, world-renowned tennis champion, headlined this year’s tournament, and was accompanied by tennis professionals: Simona Halep, Darren Cahill, Frances Tiafoe, and Nick Kyrgios.
2018 marks the 3rd year Amundi Pioneer has sponsored the event. This year the event benefitted ACEing Autism, a national non-profit organization that serves children with autism throughout the U.S. by enhancing their lives through tennis.
The round robin tournament gave the opportunity for 24 amateur players to interact, learn, and play with some of the best tennis players in the world. Select Amundi Pioneer representatives and U.S. offshore clients were invited to sit in the court-side VIP section at the tournament in support of the cause of the afternoon.
Richard Spurling, Executive Director & Founder at ACEing Autism, mentioned that his company services more than 1,000 autistic children nationwide every week and is working to expand to reach more children by enhancing their program offerings. Their plan is to reach 4,500 autistic children by the end of 2021.
According to Amundi Pioneer, “the event was a great success, and raised a grand total of $40,000 for an important charity.”
