The catalyst for 11 Ravens was a fundraiser in which co-founders Michael Zaretsky, professional table tennis player/coach, and, Bernard Semerdjian, award-winning designer, teamed up to build a Marvel approved and Stan Lee signed, Spider Man themed tennis table for charity to support The Alzheimer Table Tennis Therapy Program in collaboration with Zaretsky’s Sport and Art Educational Foundation (SAEF). Today, a portion of all 11 Ravens sales goes to SAEF and Alzheimers Therapy.
