TV3 presenter Azura Zainal will be among the celebrities in the CEO and Celebrity Charity Tennis this Sunday at the National Tennis Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
TENNIS balls, a shoe and pictures signed by famous players will go under the hammer to raise funds for the CEO and Celebrity Charity Tennis this Sunday at the National Tennis Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
The event is jointly organised by NSTP and Bursa Malaysia, and held in conjunction with the ECM Libra Foundation and Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia Junior Tennis Cham pionships.
Last year, a total of RM75,000 was raised, and it looks like at least RM100,000 will be collected for charity this year.
“We have a used tennis shoe signed by Maria Sharapova, a framed set of four tennis balls signed by Roger Federer, James Blake, John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg; photos of Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras with their signatures which were all given to us by IMG.
“And we also have a jumbo tennis ball signed by Anna Kournikova courtesy of Dunlop. All the items will go under the hammer during the tournament, and we hope to raise a substantial sum,” said NSTP Corporate Communication and Events senior manager Wan Abdillah Wan Nawi.
DLP Sporting Goods director Alan Tang said they are happy to be associated with this glamorous event.
“This year other than tennis balls, we will also be providing T-shirts and a jumbo ball sighed by Anna for auction. And next year, we hope to get more items for auction, like memorabilia from Thailand’s Tamarin Tanasugam,” said Alan.
Sixty-four players have confirmed for the fun-filled event, where a lucky draw will decide who-partners-who.
