The Andre Agassi
Foundation for Education raised more than $26.1 million, a record amount, at the 16th
Grand Slam for Children benefit concert, in conjunction with its longtime partner and
presenting sponsor, Longines. A donation of $18 million from
Kirk Kerkorian, $1.5 million from the Engelstad Family Foundation and $1 million from
Windsong Trust, combined with ticket sales and proceeds from a live auction, accounted for
the largest amount raised in a single night for the foundation.

The package including a weekend for four at the 2012 Kentucky Derby and a
Longines Master Collection Moon Phases “Andre Agassi” special watch was auctioned for
$90,000. The funds benefit the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy (Agassi Prep),
a tuition-free public charter school serving students in historical West Las Vegas.
