Tennis players offer signed items for COVID-19 fundraiser
Published Mar 17, 2020
There may be no tennis watch for a while, but here's a win-win way to stay connected to the game: Frances Tiafoe, Bianca Andreescu and many more have donated signed memorabilia to Athletes for COVID-19 Relief, and those who contribute to the campaign can win one of the items.
A donation of $25 or more to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's COVID-19 Response Fund allows you to enter the contest, with the winner selected at random.
Tiafoe is putting an autographed pair of shoes up for grabs, while Andreescu, Caty McNally, Michael Chang and Todd Martin are all donating tennis racquets—McNally's was even used in a match.
Meanwhile, commentator Brett Haber is offering a signed Tennis Channel Australian Open T-shirt and cap.
And it seems a contribution will get you a reasonable chance at winning—at this writing, only a handful of people have entered to win the tennis items.
The fundraiser website says the Center for Disaster Philanthropy will support local nonprofits to provide assistance to vulnerable populations, such as older adults, people with disabilities and hourly wage workers.
