“Following the success of our Game, Set, Pour event, which sells out year after year, we decided to introduce another off-court event celebrating South Florida’s best food and drink pairings – this time with a taco theme. The Delray Beach Open’s inaugural Tacos, Tequila and Tennis event is not only guaranteed to be fun and delicious, but also a great opportunity to benefit one of our favorite local nonprofits, Love Serving Autism.
