What: The 12th annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala
Where: ACL Live at the Moody Theater
The lowdown: On Monday, October 30, tennis superstar Andy Roddick hosted the 12th annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala. Country musician Jake Owens performed as more than 1,500 supporters dined, danced, and donated in support of Austin students. Before Owens took to the infamous Moody Theater stage, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, elegant dinner, and lively auction. Actress Brooklyn Decker also made a brief appearance at her husband's event, despite battling a stomach flu earlier in the day.
Roddick, who grew up in Austin, created the foundation in 2000 as a way to support after-school and summer programs. Since retiring from tennis in 2012, Roddick and his foundation have raised more than $7 million in support of area youth.
