Ten national winners will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York to be guests at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day, go to a professional sporting event, check out a Broadway show, take a boat tour around New York City and receive an award at a luncheon in their honor. Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is a day-long festival of kids’ tennis activities that includes interactive games, musical entertainment and free clinics. It will be a weekend to remember!
