About the Music City Tennis Invitational
The Music City Tennis Invitational is the longest-running music-related charity tennis tournament in the country. The nonprofit organization is sustained through its committed volunteers and support from entertainment industry and businesses across the country. MCTI was established in 1973 by music publisher Wesley Rose of Acuff Rose Music, Helen Farmer of the American Cancer Society, and leaders in the music industry and business community. Their vision was to promote camaraderie among tennis enthusiasts while raising funds for charity. MCTI's honors include the USTA 2008 Southern Charity Tennis Event of the Year as well as the USTA 2008 Charity Tennis Event of the Year. To date, MCTI has donated more than $1.3 million to the Center for Child Development. In 2010, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean honored MCTI with a proclamation recognizing MCTI's commitment to the Center and commending their service to the Nashville community.
