Andy Roddick Raises More Than $1 Million for Charity
The event, which benefitted children’s organizations, featured a cocktail reception, a dinner, a live auction and a performance by Sir Elton John, who sang several of his classics, along with closing out the evening with a tribute to “The Lion King.”
Guests who supported Roddick’s cause included his wife Brooklyn Decker, Terrell Owens, Fred Couples, James Blake, Austin DJ Bobby Bones, Mark Knowles and the Mayor of Austin, Lee Leffingwell.
Attendees had the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind items such as a spa day with Roddick’s wife, golf with Roddick and Fred Couples and trips to The Masters and Australian Open.
The tennis pro’s foundation is dedicated to “Serving Children Today for Tomorrow.” It aims to “improve the quality of life and enhance educational and economic opportunities for all children based on the principles of respect or family, education and morality.”
Sounds like many children will benefit from the successful evening!
