Mylan WTT Smash Hits raises record amount
October 16, 2012
Team Billie Jean King won the match, besting Team Elton John, 19-17.
King’s squad increased their lead in men’s doubles as Mark Knowles joined Agassi to pick up a 5-2 win over Roddick and Jan-Michael Gambill.
Earlier in the evening, a silent and live auction raised more than $375,000 of the night’s total. The top auction item of the night went for $200,000 when two bidders paid $100,000 each for a package that included tickets to Sir Elton John’s “The Million Dollar Piano” show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and dinner with Elton and Billie Jean King. A hitting session with Andre Agassi and Stefanie Graf in Las Vegas sold for $55,000. Other auction items were a 2013 Super Bowl Package with a dinner hosted by NFL legend Franco Harris, an Elton John-signed piano bench, a hitting session with Martina Navratilova, and Wimbledon and US Open packages.
