Righteous Racquets

Building The Future Foundation’s milestone 15th Annual Tennis Tournament on Key Biscayne is a game with real heart. Play hard — or be a cheering spectator — and, most importantly, have fun.

Since its inception back in 2008, the Building The Future Foundation has lived up to and exceeded its mantra “Where Educational Dreams Come True,” by strengthening educational institutions and organizations in the most socio-economically vulnerable areas of Colombia. Their fundraisers — including the flagship 15th Annual Doubles Round Robin Tennis Tournament on Nov. 11 at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne Tennis Center — have allowed them to enhance school facilities, build libraries, renovate school sports fields, donate goods of all types, and even sponsor beach clean-ups. For decades, they’ve lent a helping hand to the less fortunate in Miami as well. Break out your tennis racket and join them for snacks and drinks, raffles, and grand prizes awarded to each finalist, all in support of their valuable efforts that make a measurable difference in the lives of others. “A small act of kindness goes a long way and our non-profit has improved the lives of children in Colombia and South America time and time again,” says Co-Founder Cheryl Plotkin Lopez. “We couldn’t have done this without our supporters and volunteers.”; 305.799.8771;
