On November 30, 2018, the 3rd Annual Men’s Invitational took place at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, organized by Kosty Gilis and Peter Giacomelli. 28 tennis players from the Toronto business community gathered to enjoy this evening filled with competitive doubles tennis and great company, all to benefit the Doug Philpott Inner City Children’s Tennis Fund.
The event began with a light buffet dinner that was followed by a Davis Cup style tournament where the players were split into either Team Nestor or Team Curtis. The evening was full of competitive tennis and socializing, as each team continued to encourage their fellow teammates to victory.
Many thanks to all those who attended, Kosty and Peter for organizing the event, and the following corporate sponsors who helped us raise over $36,000 for the Philpott charity: Scotiabank, RBC, TD Bank, Onex, Birch Hill Equity Partners, Emst and Young, KPMG, Greenwin, Miller Thomson, Penfund, Torys.
The Doug Philpott Inner City Children’s Fund is extremely appreciative for all the support and looks forward to the 4th Annual Men’s Invitational in 2019.
