On November 15, 2019, 32 tennis players from the Toronto business community gathered for the 4th Annual Philpott Men’s Invitational held at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club. Kosty Gilis and Peter Giacomelli organized this fundraising event in support of Philpott Children’s Tennis, a charity that provides free tennis to children in priority neighborhoods.
The evening began with a light dinner buffet that was followed by a doubles tournament where the players were split into either Team Nestor or Team Pospisil. The evening was full of socializing and competitive tennis all for a wonderful cause.
Philpott Children’s Tennis would like to thank Kosty and Peter for organizing the event and all the following sponsors: RBC Capital Markets, Scotiabank, National Bank, TD Securities, ONEX, Paul Weiss, Radical Ventures, Torys, Birch Hill, Dickinson Wright, Ernst and Young, Harvey Kalles Ltd., KPMG, MLSE, Miller Thomson, Peloton Capital, Penfund, and Torquest. Between the sponsorships and individual donations, the event raised over $60,000 for the Philpott charity.
Philpott Children’s Tennis is very grateful for all of the generous donations that will assist us in providing more free tennis to children in priority neighborhoods in Toronto.
