This summer marks the Hamptons debut of tennis power couple Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, who have been vacationing in the posh Long Island community with their children. But it is not all fun and games. They are also there to raise awareness and funds for The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation.
Last Saturday night, the couple hosted A Night in the Hamptons – a benefit dinner that drew the attendance of other celebrities such as Lorraine Bracco. Chevy Chase and Kelsey Grammer emceed the event, and singer Rob Thomas performed. “It’s inspiring, what he’s doing,” Thomas said of Agassi’s charity work.
The event also included a live auction, and an online auction runs through August 21.
The Agassi Foundation, founded in 1994, is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children through its support of recreational and educational programs, including Agassi Prep, a school for disadvantaged children in the Agassi and Graf family’s hometown of Las Vegas. More than 180,000 children have been touched by the Foundation’s funding of programs designed to enhance their character, self-esteem and career possibilities.
