The "Hit for Haiti Presented by Oracle" exhibition will feature a lineup of Grand Slam champions that includes Martina Navratilova, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Lindsay Davenport, Steffi Graf, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Justine Henin. Proceeds from ticket sales and viewer contributions will support American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.
The Tennis Channel will run an on-screen crawl with donation information for viewers and an encore replay of the event immediately following its conclusion. The network’s Web site, www.tennischannel.com, will also stream the event live and provide a link for visitors who want to contribute to Haiti relief.
“Oracle is proud to participate in fundraising efforts to benefit the relief efforts in Haiti,” said Oracle Chief Executive Officer Larry Ellison. “It is impressive to see this remarkable line up of athletes work together to raise much-needed funds for Haiti. Our hope is to hold an event that supports relief efforts and continues to raise the visibility for how Haiti needs the world’s help.”
The exhibition will be accessible online via on-demand throughout the tournament, as will the donation link.
