Palm Beach Post – June 14,
A high-tech Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office helicopter landed at BallenIsles Country Club June 10 to mark the start of the Kids and Police Tennis Association (KAPTA) summer camp.
KAPTA, a PBSO program founded by Palm Beach County Deputy Sheriff Ira Peskowitz, uses the values and skills of tennis to establish an encouraging environment for children.
“We’re very grateful to BallenIsles’ members for their generosity in providing these kids with such a rare opportunity at its new state-of-the-art sports complex,” Peskowitz said. “BallenIsles Country Club’s member resident and world-class tennis sensation Venus Williams has been so gracious with her personal time even as she prepares for Wimbledon.”
