Elton John just hosted his 16th annual Advanta World Team Tennis Smash Hits event this past weekend. The money raised will be used to help those with AIDS in the South.
“Forty six percent of AIDS cases are now being reported in the South," Elton said on Sunday at the Kennesaw State University tennis court. "We are distinctly aware of the problems here and the South will continue to be a priority for the foundation. “All of the money raised here today will stay here in the Atlanta market and in Georgia.”
Our Poppa is so great!
Joining Elton to help out in this great event were several star players and celebs, including Andy Roddick.
Up for auction to raise money for the benefit was an hour session of private tennis tutoring with Roddick.
And, in an attempt to get a higher bid, the recently engaged Andy said he'd take off his shirt during the session.
That got the bid up to $11,000!
Then, he said he'd do the lesson FULLY nude.
That got him a final $15,000 from one very luck female fan.
But, seriously, Roddick is definitely worth more than $15k naked!!!!
Don't ya agree?
