USTA Eastern and the Western Region received the 2010 Business Appreciation Award on Tuesday, March 23 at the 14th Annual Youth Recognition Banquet at Bohn's Restaurant & Lounge in Batavia. The banquet is hosted by the Genesee County and City of Batavia Youth Boards. The award is presented to a local business that supports the Youth Bureaus (Genesee County Youth Bureau and City of Batavia Youth Bureau) and youth development. Here is an excerpt from the program:

'We are represented by Joe Steger, Tennis Service Representative and Maria Lirio, Tennis Program Specialist. These two individuals have provided both the City of Batavia and the Genesee County Youth Bureaus with an overwhelming amount of guidance and support over the years. They are responsible for assisting the Youth Bureaus in gaining thousands of dollars in financial support for local tennis programs. They have encouraged and have assisted both Youth Bureaus in not only applying for local and regional funding, but also grants on the national level.

The successful expansion of our tennis programming in the City of Batavia as well as Genesee County is attributable to the assistance and leadership

provided to our organizations by USTA Eastern Western Region, more specifically, Joe Steger and Maria Lirio.'
