Elton John will be having his 20th annual Mylan WTT Smash Hits next week along with longtime friend, Billie Jean King.

The charity event will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force.

Sir Elton said:

"It is always such a pleasure to co-host this wonderful event with my dear friend Billie Jean King. I’m so pleased that we will be teaming up with the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force to raise awareness about the continuing challenges of the HIV/AIDS epidemic both locally and nationally and to raise urgently needed dollars for community-based HIV prevention, education, treatment, and care services. I urge all othe tennis fans and concerned citizens in the Greater Pittsburgh area to support this event and bring their families for a wonderful evening of tennis for a great cause."

Aside from Elton and Billie, they'll be joined by Andre Agassi, Stefanie Graf, Martina Navratilova and Andy Roddick!

They get to play the game they love to play, and raise tons of ca$h while they're doing it!

Since Elton started doing the charity tennis event in 1993, it's raised over $10.5 MILLION for AIDS charities!

That's so ahmayzing! He's the best!
