High-powered crowd at Prostate Cancer Foundation tennis tournament


Away from the US Open, moguls and pros mixed on the courts at the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s annual Charles Evans PCF Pro-Am Tennis Tournament.

The Hamptons competition takes place as part of the organization’s annual gala festivities.

This year’s winners included venture capitalist Mark Ein and French pro player Fabrice Martin, Saratoga Investment Corp.’s Chris Oberbeck and retired player Alex Bogomolov, Amy Griffin and winner of 28 pro doubles titles Jared Palmer, and Bob Hogan with Graydon Oliver.

Attendees at the gala at the Parrish Art Museum, where John Fogerty performed, included founder Michael Milken, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Nick Bollettieri, Reno Manne, Larry Leeds, Mitch Modell and Wayne Ferreira.

The tournament is initially played on the private courts of VIPs including Bill Ackman, John and Jenny Paulson and Leon and Debra Black, before the finals action moves to the Shinnecock Tennis Club.

From the stage, Milken made a moving tribute to Sen. John McCain and stressed the importance of cancer research.
