Are you ready to go “Off the Wall”?

Please join Simon and his family and friends for the “Off the Wall” Fundraiser Finale

Simon Caldwell began the "Off the Wall" Fundraiser on October 10 to support our neighbors in need through the work of The Foundation. Simon is a 12-year-old student at Elizabeth Ann Seton middle school with a passion for tennis. He competes at a very high level in the USTA and is currently 19th in the country for his age group. With the help of his family and friends, he wants to give back to the community that has supported him.

Thanks to the support of our generous community he has already raised over $4,000 and his original goal was $3,000. Simon has been influenced by his giving family and his tennis role models and he decided he didn’t need to wait to give back!

On November 15, Simon will complete the last 100 hits at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. The event will include a tennis mixer and an exhibition match to celebrate our generous community. There will be a tennis clinic with fun drills and games.

  • You are invited to come to watch and cheer him on for no cost.
  • If you would like to join him and play tennis with Simon in a mixer the cost is $50. The $50 gets you 1 hour and 45 minutes of tennis and snacks. 
  • The event will wrap up with an entertaining exhibition match that Simon will play in.
  • All proceeds will go to The Father Fred Foundation, to help our neighbors in need.
  • If you would like to reserve your spot contact Josie Caldwell at
