The 16th Grand Slam for Children was held on October 29, 2011 at Wynn Las Vegas. The event raised a whopping $8.1 million. We are very thankful for our new and longtime supports of our event and the Agassi Foundation.
We'd like to send a big thank you to Michael Buble, Martina McBride, Smokey Robinson, Jeff Ross, Signature Group and Train for making this event so special. We'd like to give an extra thank you to Jimmy Kimmel for being Master of Ceremonies and for injecting his humor and charm into the show. We are grateful to all of our performers for donating their time to our event. For more event details visit our Media Center to view the press release.
We'd also like to thank all of our dedicated volunteers for their hard work and passion for our organization. We could not have done this without you.
The 2011 Grand Slam slideshow will be coming soon. Please check back for pictures from the event. If you took pictures with our guest photographer Stefan Studer at the "photo booth" right outside of the ballroom the night of the event, those photos will be emailed directly to you. Stefan has been vigorously working in them and will have them done shortly. If you would like more information about Stefan or the pictures from the event he can be contacted through the channels below.

2012 Grand Slam Event
Due to the recent success of the 16th Grand Slam for Children event and to an $18 million gift from Mr. Kirk Kerkorian and The Dream Fund at UCLA, the Agassi Foundation for Education has decided to take 2012 off from the event in an effort to concentrate on expanding the student population at Agassi Prep.
A star-studded night to raise money and awareness
The Grand Slam for Children is a major fundraising vehicle for the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education. Proceeds from each year's star-studded event support our signature project, the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, and help us improve education for all children. Since 1995, the Grand Slam has raised nearly $92 million. Through the generosity of our supporters, we continue to transform education and create opportunities that change children's lives.
