What: Andy Roddick Foundation Luncheon
Where: Hilton Austin
The lowdown: It was an action-packed weekend for Andy Roddick. Beginning on Friday, April 20, Roddick joined friend and fellow tennis star Amer Delic in a Supermarket Sweep-esque shopping spree through Sam's Club in support of the Andy Roddick Foundation. In two minutes, the tennis pros were able to grab more than $10,000 in supplies to support ARF summer programs.
"This annual shopping spree helps us collect necessities the Foundation needs to operate from books and toys for the children to office supplies,” said Roddick, who partnered with Austin-based Retail Me Not for the event.
On Saturday, April 21, Roddick joined his wife, Brooklyn Decker, and Anna Dukes Delic for a festive luncheon at downtown's Hilton Austin. The affair, now in its third year, featured a silent auction; VIP reception; and inspirational panel hosted by Decker and featuring luminaries such as Colette Pierce Burnette, the first female president of Huston-Tillotson University. After remarks from ARF CEO Richard Tagle, guests enjoyed a sit-down lunch before mingling throughout the afternoon.
