Press Release Source: Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation

Andre Agassi and All-Star Lineup Help Raise More Than $8.6 Million For Children at 11th Celebrity Gala Concert Benefit
Sunday October 8, 4:15 am ET

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Andre Agassi and a superstar lineup of entertainers took the stage Saturday evening at the Grand Slam for Children presented by Genworth Financial to benefit at-risk children in Southern Nevada. The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation (AACF) raised more than $8.6 million during the gala benefit which featured a black-tie VIP dinner, live auction and concert held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

More than 8,000 fans and VIP guests packed the arena Saturday night to see performances by Phil Collins, Michael Buble, Counting Crows, Ellen DeGeneres, a special acoustic performance by John Mayer, Sarah McLachlan, Tears for Fears and Oleta Adams. Grammy Award-winning producer, arranger and composer David Foster served as the musical director for the 11th year.

"Every year, I am overwhelmed by the tremendous support the Grand Slam for Children receives from the Las Vegas community, business partners and the entertainment industry," Agassi said. "It is gratifying to know that 100 percent of the money we raised tonight will directly benefit children who require our assistance."

The VIP sponsors attended a pre-concert reception and dinner followed by a live auction. Items included a 2007 Mercedes CL550, not yet available in the United States, and first-class accommodations for four to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival accompanied by a private cooking experience with Emeril Lagasse. The highlight of the auction was the bidding for two Agassi rackets, the one he used to win his first tournament title and the racket he played with in his last match at the 2006 U.S. Open. After a bidding war, Stefanie Graf walked on stage and offered $360,000 to keep the rackets in the family; the auctioneer instantly closed the sale.

The Grand Slam for Children concert fundraiser benefits the AACF, a not-for-profit organization established in 1994 to assist at-risk youth in Las Vegas, where Andre was raised. More than 90,000 fans and VIP guests have attended 11 Grand Slam events, raising $60.9 million for charity.

Specific charities benefiting from the AACF fundraiser include the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a model charter school in West Las Vegas; Andre Agassi Boys & Girls Club; Assistance League of Las Vegas' Operation School Bell; Boys Hope/Girls Hope of Nevada; Child Haven; Class! Publications; Cynthia Bunker and Joy McClenahan Memorial Scholarship Fund; I Have A Dream Foundation; Greater Las Vegas After-School All-Stars presented by Inner-City Games; Las Vegas Philharmonic's Youth Concert Series; Las Vegas Sun Summer Camp; and YMCA of Southern Nevada.

Tell Anna to gain some more weight...she's scaring me with the lollipop look.

Andre and Steffi look good!

Re: Agassi's Grand Slam for Children Fundraiser

Anna's dress would be gorgeous if it didn't have that big hole in the side of it. As it is she looks like she got caught in barbed wire on the way over. And John Mayer is creepy.

Nice work though, Andre.

Re: Agassi's Grand Slam for Children Fundraiser

OMGosh. I miss Andre.

8.6 million dollars in one night. You know, it just goes to prove what using your influence and popularity can accomplish. Andre and Stefani (I guess she doesn't want to be steffi anymore?) look FANTASTIC. So does Pete. Anna is beautiful of course, but the dress is ugly. Why must she constantly display to all that she has a waist?

it reminds a little bit of a 12 year old girl who sneaks eye makeup out of the house and puts it on in the poorly lit school bathroom. Cuz when you're 12, there's no such thing as too much mascara. Yikes.
