AFTA is a non-profit organization that runs an annual tennis mixer
to benefit seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
The 2005 benefit was held at the Regency Sports & Health Club in McLean, VA.
The evening included a special pro-am mixed-doubles exhibition match
("officiated" by yours truly!)
featuring Richie Renenberg (former #1 professional world doubles player)
and players from George Washington University.

The single-set match was won by Dawn and Matt 7-5!
AFTA thanks the players for volunteering their time
and displaying their talents in a very exciting match!
