The Beverly Hills Police Foundation (www.BHPoliceFoundation.org) is a tax exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) charity created in 1987 to provide financial grants for all members of the police family, including sworn officers, civilian professionals, their spouses and widows/widowers or dependent children. Their mission is to be there as a backstop for when there is an urgent financial need. The Board of Directors, an independent body comprised of community members, is charged with evaluating and awarding funds. The Beverly Hills Police Foundation prides itself on maintaining a low overhead so that dollars raised can go directly to helping those in times of crisis.

Beverly Hills Tennis has been the concessionaire at La Cienega Tennis Center since 1995. Named one of the nation’s most outstanding public tennis facilities by United States Tennis Associations (USTA), Beverly Hills Tennis has created a totally unique tennis environment that can be enjoyed by everyone at all levels. It is open to the public, giving them the private Country Club feel with no membership required. Through the years, Beverly Hills Tennis is proud to be the “Go To” court for Beverly Hills / Los Angeles residents and Hollywood power players.

Mimi Makabi, Editor in Chief of the leading philanthropic magazine in Beverly Hills, Celebrity Society, and Honorary Committee Member, states, "I am truly humbled to be producing this amazing Beverly Hills Tennis Celebrity Tournament Charity for our great men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line to protect us each and every day."

Tennis players will be separated into levels and will participate in a round robin format of play. Winners of each level will proceed into a championship bracket. Players can also take part in a "drill court" run by the top pros at Beverly Hills Tennis. All players will receive a gift bag, as well as breakfast and lunch.
