Join us for the First Annual FORTify Our Future Fundraising Gala on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Hotel Intercontinental St. Paul Riverfront. More information about this inaugural event will be coming in the next few weeks, including ticket information, as all proceeds will benefit the Capital Campaign.

We need your help with this exciting evening as we are looking for volunteers both prior to and night of the event. Volunteer opportunities are available in the following areas: event planning, decorations, auctions and games, entertainment, marketing, sponsorship, event set-up/take down and more. Please contact Lisa Mushett at if you would be available to help with this landmark event.

Our fundraising goal is $100,000 and we need your support in reaching this aggressive number in helping us FORTify Our Future and Phase III of the Capital Campaign. One way is to become a corporate sponsor of the Gala. We have a number of sponsorship opportunities available at different levels - all with amazing benefits for your organization.

We also are looking for table hosts!

Enjoy a wonderful evening with friends and co-workers while supporting The Fort’s mission of bringing people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to embrace the lifelong game of tennis while serving under-resourced youth with the support of the community.
