In 2015 Arts for the Aging, Inc. (AFTA) celebrates its 27th year and its 25th annual tennis tournament. Founded in 1988 by renowned sculptor, the late Lolo Sarnoff, AFTA brings the arts to older adults, especially those who are frail and vulnerable. AFTA is the D.C. region’s leading arts service organization dedicated to combating isolation and spreading joy to seniors through frequent participation in the arts. Proceeds from the tournament will help to sustain AFTA's high-quality arts programs that improve the lives of seniors who need it most.
