    Last night, the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation (ITC) Young Leadership Committee hosted a ping pong tournament at Slate. All proceeds from the night went towards the tennis centers' coexistence program. Over 150 dedicated young professionals gathered to compete.

    The Israeli Tennis Centers Foundation owns and operates 14 centers throughout Israel. The ITC facilities provide life changing and sustainable outreach social programs for Israeli children. Co-existence between Jewish and Arab Israeli children is one of ITC's main programs. As has been shown, sport has the unparalleled ability to transcend barriers of language, politics and religion. Therefore, ITC aims to instill positive perceptions through joint tennis activities for Jewish, Muslim, Druze and Bedouin Israeli children. ITC's vision of bringing Israeli children together with sports, regardless of their background or religion, has helped it grow to becoming one of the largest social service organizations for children in Israel.
