Tenacity, one of Boston’s largest youth development programs, will host a night of casino-themed fun on Oct. 3 from 7-11 p.m. at the Algonquin Club on Commonwealth Avenue.

Former professional tennis payer Ned Eames started Tenacity in 2000 in an effort to assist the academic and physical development of Boston’s urban youth by using tennis instruction and competition as the means.

This tennis and enrichment program has reached more than 6,500 youths in Boston, many of whom are BPS kids, and has programs in Worcester as well.

Friends and spouses are cordially invited to support Tenacity at the Monte Carlo-themed event, which will showcase various games, prizes, and a comedy show featuring one of Boston’s best new female comics. Some of the prizes include: a gaming weekend at an unnamed resort and a trip to a undisclosed Caribbean destination.
