Game. Set. AFTA!

The 22nd Annual Tennis Tournament benefiting AFTA was an ace! Players and spectators alike came out on a sunny Saturday afternoon in June for round-robin play on private courts around the D.C. metro area. Afterwards, semi, final and exhibition matches along with a party and silent auction took place at Fairfax Racquet Club. A few days later, ensuing rain cleared out just in time for His Excellency Jonas Hafström, The Ambassador of Sweden, to host a reception in thanks to our event supporters. Congratulations tournament winners in Flight A, Marissa Gayle and Babar Ahmed, and in Flight B, Dawn Buth and Mitchell Schear. The trophies, original sculptures by AFTA Founder and Chair Emerita Lolo Sarnoff, are named Wanderpreis. Each year the winners share the take-home sculptures — that is, until next year.

Fresh Look. Big Honor.

What better way to begin rolling out Arts for the Aging’s 25th Anniversary next year than with our new look and announcement of an exciting new honor?

NEW, is our vibrant logo (top left), most recently seen anchoring our website re-launch this past winter. It now is making its way into more print and online materials, and with color schemes meant to spark the spirit of joy, engagement and transformation older adults experience in our programs.

Our looks aren’t just skin deep.

NOW, experts from area foundations, corporate giving programs and peer non-profit organizations agree, from a field of 220 competitors, AFTA is among 74 nonprofits selected by the Catalog for Philanthropy for Excellence, Cost-Effectiveness and Impact in the Greater Washington D.C. region. We will be featured in both their print and online Catalogue, which has enormous reach and potential.

Invest with confidence.
