A new charity auction is offering two tickets to The Andy Roddick Foundation gala at the Hilton Hotel in Austin, TX on November 30, 2009 at 6:30pm with seating at the head table with Andy Roddick and possibly Elton John. In addition, the winning bid will choose the set of songs Elton will sing at the gala. This amazing package also includes a two nights stay at the Austin Hilton Hotel.
Andy Roddick’s foundation is a non profit, nonsectarian organization. Simply put, it is their mission to raise funds and distribute them to institutions that care for children who have been abused, have catastrophic illnesses, and are at risk for neglect. Some of their recipients are Kids In Distress, A Safe Haven for Newborns, A Glimmer of Hope, Habitat for Humanity, KIPP Austin College Prep, Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center of South Florida, Sun-Sentinel Children’s Fund, Here’s Help, Settlement Home, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, Back to Basics Angel Fund, Tiger Fund, Deliver the Dream, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“Serving Children Today For Tomorrow” defines everything they do to help unprivileged children and their families by giving them a reason to smile during difficult times so they can regain their strength, mend their spirits and be healthy children and families. Their vision is about describing the cultural environment in which they imagine children to be cared for and raised; It is not a one, five, or ten year goal- it is a goal for all generations.
The auction closes October 22, and can be accessed here.
