On Saturday, March 16, 2019, Down the Line and Beyond Foundation enjoyed a packed house for its Ninth annual Gala at the Cynwyd Club in Bala Cynwyd.

Guests enjoyed a spectacular evening at the Cynwyd Club, with delicious food, silent/live auctions, raffle baskets, an open bar (sponsored by Tito’s vodka), and dancing. TD Charitable Foundation received the DTLB Community Leadership Award for their support of community organizations that improve the lives of youth around the country. The night was topped off by a live auction and appeal that raised more than $10,000, exceeding our goals for the children and communities we serve. DTLB couldn’t ask for a better conclusion to the night. Thank you for your compassion and commitment and click here for additional photos and information from the night!


“Our mission is to facilitate positive character and education development for Philadelphia area youth through the sport of tennis, in order to maximize each child’s full potential on and off the court and promote a community around the sport.” 

Down the Line and Beyond (DTLB) is a United States Tennis Organization (USTA) affiliated National Junior Tennis League (NJTL) 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation that organizes free tennis, education and character development programs for 1900 children in underserved parks and communities within the city of Philadelphia.  

DTLB, with the assistance of CITRS, an organization that structures and implements effective character education and development, has built a curriculum for its programs that fosters integrity, self-control, justice, fortitude, positive attitude, humility, respect and good sportsmanship.  The character development curriculum is an essential element of every Down the Line and Beyond activity.
