ISRAEL TENNIS AND EDUCATION CENTERS 2021 campaign
In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Jeff’s death in July 2021, our family and friends are planning to raise $100,000 for the Israel Tennis and Education Centers (ITEC) for special needs and underprivileged children. ITEC provides educational programs and tennis to disadvantaged children of all backgrounds and religions at ITEC’S 14 facilities throughout Israel. The money raised will:
- Support the COVID Children’s Emergency Relief campaign during the pandemic for mental health issues, healthy meals, etc. In order to give ITEC immediate assistance with COVID, we have made an initial $10,000 donation to their Emergency Relief Fund
- Support ITEC’s Special Needs Programs for the physically disabled, hearing impaired and Special Olympics tournaments
- Provide an Annual Jeff Astor Day field trip for the children
- Honor Jeff by naming an existing tennis court in Tel Aviv in his memory
Your donation will be made directly to ITEC through a special page on their website devoted to this campaign.
