VIDEO: Tennis at the Ritz
Cliff Drysdale Tennis held a charity pro-am at its tennis center at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne. The Miami All-Star Tennis Charity Event coincided with the start of the Sony Open. Among those participating were Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Ana Ivanovic, Mary-Joe Fernandez and Patrick McEnroe.
The fundraiser benefitted First Serve Miami, an organization founded in 1974 that uses tennis as a catalyst to get inner-city kids off the street.

“Kudos,” said Knight Foundation’s Dennis Scholl. Others referred to the evening as avant garde, as the Miami Design District presented the inaugural Site-Specific Performance Series.
The night could not have been better. On a full moon third Saturday, three of Miami’s top organizations presented four acts in three different locations. The evening began in the 4141 Building with the Young Artists of Florida Grand Opera. The dynamic performance filled the atrium with the human voice as onlookers surrounded the action.
