.. due to inclement weather














(As of 11:30 a.m. ET)
Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day Canceled

In light of the current forecast regarding Hurricane Irene and in order to avoid any possible safety issues for our fans and patrons, many of whom would have been arriving on-site with young children, the USTA is canceling Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day. This decision also follows discussions held between the USTA and New York City officials. The event was scheduled to take place tomorrow, Saturday, August 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. This cancellation covers both the free grounds activities scheduled for the morning and the ticketed Stadium show that was scheduled for 1-3 p.m. The USTA’s inclement weather policy for Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day will be in effect and can be viewed at www.arthurashekidsday.com (http://www.arthurashekidsday.com/).

CBS plans to air a highlights show featuring the best of previous Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day performances along with select pre-taped elements from 2011. The program is scheduled to air Sunday, August 28, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. ET.

Bradley Cooper (actor), Carmelo Anthony (basketball player) and Jason Derulo (singer) are pretty well known, but I have no idea who those other people are.
