Andy Roddick held his 6th annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala Wednesday night in his hometown of Austin, Texas and it was another smashing success.
The charity event hosted at the ACL Live Moody Theatre raised over $1 million dollars
Among the celebrities in attendance included Roddick’s supermodel wife, Brooklyn Decker, NFL wideout Terrell Owens, golfing great Fred Couples, fellow tennis stars James Blake and Mark Knowles and music king Sir Elton John.
Guests bid on one of a kind auction items including a spa day with Brooklyn Decker, golf with Andy and Fred Couples and unique trips to The Masters and Australian Open.
The event benefited local children’s organizations, such as KIPP: Austin Public Schools, The Settlement Home for Children, Austin Partners in Education, A Glimmer of Hope, Austin Children’s Shelter and the Andy Roddick Youth Tennis Program.
Since its inception in 2001, the Andy Roddick Foundation has raised over $10 million toward improving the quality of life and enhancing educational and economic opportunities for all children based on the principles of respect for family, education and morality.
Congrats to Andy on a great event!
