Mark your calendars for our

19th annual family picnic!!

Saturday, August 23rd


Town of Halfmoon Park Club House

162 R. 236    Halfmoon, NY  12065


We had such a great time at our 18th annual family picnic this summer in Halfmoon, NY!  Thank you to all of the families who attended this year -

we loved seeing everyone! 

And a very special thank you goes out to

Brick House Pizza & Grille

who sponsored this year's picnic!

Brick House provided pizza for everyone

for donations to Children at Heart!

Brick House is run by one of our

adoptive families - we are so excited

to have them as a sponsor at the picnic.

Not only do they make great pizza,

but they are a great family!

Our other sponsor this year was Greco Construction - we so appreciate their ample donation to provide bottled water and drinks for the picnic!

We would also like to thank the Blond family for

their donations and help with this even!  We are so blessed to have the support of this amazing family!!

Children at Heart hosted

the 2nd annual

Aces for Orphans



on July 27-28, 2012

at the Althea Gibson Tennis

Complex at Empie Park

in Wilmington, NC

Over 70 players turned out for the event - including sponsorship donations, we raised just over $5,000!

There were four playing levels, and anyone ages 14

and up were invited to play in the event.  The winning team for each level took home some amazing prizes -

all winning team members received $60 in gift

certificates to local shops and restaurants, as well

as a bottle of wine provided by ONEHOPE Wine. 

Each tennis player received a gift bag at registration,

dinner on Friday evening provided by Jones Fish

Camp, and lunch Saturday afternoon courtesy of Pizzettas Pizzeria (both restaurants were returning sponsors from last year!).  There were also complimentary chair massages, a wine tasting,

as well as bottled water, sports drinks, and beer

throughout the tournament!  New this year was a

lounge set up provided by A Boxed Event, and a

live band - SRO Band - performed during play on

Friday night.  Both were wonderful additions to

the tournament!  We hope to provide all this

and more at next year's event!

We had some amazing sponsors for this event -

in addition to those liseted above -

see the full list below!
