Our first installment of MetamoraTV! Where film is transformative…
Love tennis? Love charity foundations? They go hand in hand for tennis stars, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, James Blake, and Mark Philippoussis and the PowerShares tennis tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Matt Duhamel had the chance to chat with the tennis stars before the tournament at the Huntsman Center at the University of Utah. Though the stars are retired, they love to give back to their communities helping with education, cancer research, and helping young tennis players throughout the country.
Andre Agassi’s foundation says “together we’re transforming public education in the United States through our public charter school in Las Vegas and by influencing state and national policy.
Since the inception of the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education in 1994, more than $180 million dollars has been raised to benefit the mission of the Foundation including $118 million from the Grand Slam for Children fundraising event. Thank you for believing in children and giving them the hope that comes with education.”
