Harry Winston and the André Agassi Charitable Foundation's Grand Slam for Children 2006

November 2006


The André Agassi Charitable Foundation's Grand Slam for Children was presented by Genworth Financial at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In a city already known for big name entertainment, the Grand Slam for Children takes center stage by presenting a star-studded evening at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. Since 1995, the event has raised more than US$60 million, and every penny goes directly to benefit underprivileged, abused or at risk children in the Las Vegas community. The event drew remarkable support from celebrities and VIPs - all friends of Andre Agassi and Stefanie Graf. This year's entertainement included performances by Counting Crows, Michael Buble, Tears For Fears, Sarah McLachlan, Phil Collins, John Mayer, the comedy of Ellen DeGeneres, Peter Cincotti, Oleta Adams, and Erika Avila, the Grand Slam Tor Stardom winner.
