A day after suffering a tough loss to Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic hosted his inaugural London auction Monday night for his Novak Djokovic Foundation.
Among those in attendance for the charity event which raised 1,200,000 GBP to support disadvantaged children in Serbia were Kate Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Boris Becker, Ron Wood and Goldie Hawn.
Djokovic’s girlfriend Jelena Ristic also was there by his man who gave her a nice nod thanking her for her dedication to the Foundation. “Love is the greatest driving force in my life, it can create miracles,” Djokovic said.
The event was held in north London at the The Roundhouse, which was transformed into a tennis themed gala dinner.
“The Foundation’s vision is to raise awareness of disadvantaged young people in Serbia and around the world, especially those who’ve had fewer opportunities to reach their full potential. With the help of my friends, family and supporters, I hope we can raise the much needed funds required to make a difference to the lives of these young children,” said Djokovic.
