Re: andre agassi endowment

If you mean has Agassi's Foundation achieved the status where they are self-sustaining, yes they are...I believe it was early last year when Agassi announced that that magic number had been reached...

In the news release, Glenn Frey, Robin Williams and a Special Surprise Guest Join the Line-Up of Performers at the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation Grand Slam for Children Benefit Concert, issued earlier today by Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation over PR Newswire, we are advised by a representative of the company that the first paragraph, first sentence, should read "Solo performer and member of the Eagles, Glenn Frey, comedian Robin Williams and a special surprise guest will join Celine Dion, Duran Duran, Earth, Wind & Fire, George Lopez and Mary J. Blige on stage Saturday, Oct. 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the Tenth Anniversary Grand Slam for Children benefit concert presented by Genworth Financial" rather than "Solo performer and former member of the Eagles, Glenn Frey..." as originally issued inadvertently.
