The Prostate Cancer Foundation holds two tennis events yearly one in Palm Beach, FL, and the other in East Hampton, NY — which collectively have raised over $10 million for the foundation which was founded by Michael Milken in 1989, and is the world’s largest source of philanthropic support for prostate cancer research.
