John McEnroe, former World No. 1 player, will make his highly anticipated debut in The Kennedy Funding Invitational for 2008, July 9 – 13. The Kennedy Funding Invitational is a benefit tournament for two area hospital breast care centers. Co-Directors James Miller, Mitch Klein, and Kevin Wolfer have put together one of the finest competitions in the U.S., which will feature top competitors from around the world who are ranked in the ATP top 100 – including last year’s Invitational winner Michael Russell, Justin Gimelstob, Robbie Ginepri, Sam Querrey and others. Also featuring a special appearance by former tennis great Aaron Krickstein in a celebrity doubles match.

Players will be competing for over $250,000 in prize money during a week-long event inspired by the passing of a beloved friend and valued member of the community.
