Just eight years ago the Stirling Club, Charlie Palmer group, a handful of members and entertainment legend Tony Bennett teamed up with Marty Hennessy, Mike Agassi and Ryan Wolfington to start a youth foundation that would give children an opportunity to play tennis, have leadership experiences, and academic help in hopes of earning scholarships to college. When it began, the poster child of the organization was Frideric Prandecki. He was the first child the foundation supported. Frideric, along with others that followed, have always been part of a program called "Earning your way." In this program they work for their scholarships as a way to understand the value of what has been given.

Member Stan Tomchin is hosting a "European Leadership Tour" with tennis Director Marty Hennessy for a number of children in's Marty Hennessy Jr. Tennis Foundation. Many Stirling Club members spearheaded this foundation 8 years ago and now boast helping introduce tennis, mentoring and education to thousands of at-risk youth annually. Their leadership program has a 100% success rate getting children into college on scholarship for tennis and academics. This summer, many of the foundation youth earned the opportunity to go to Wimbledon, attend leadership lunches and tours of the great European landmarks. Part of the experience includes lunch with Tim Henman's family and seats in his VIP box. The foundations captains from the leadership program were invited to attend, a special designation often referred to as the "seniors."
