World TeamTennis Presents LGBTQ Pride Night in Queens, N.Y.

Wish I didn't have to work -- have such fond memories of being a ball boy for the Phoenix Sunsets back in 1982 and again in 1983 when they became the Arizona Racquets.

From a release:
Thanks to the generosity of our good friends and EJAF board members Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss at World TeamTennis (WTT), the Elton John AIDS Foundation is pleased to offer our friends and contributors an opportunity to purchase special tickets to see WTT’s newest franchise – the New York Empire!
