Roger the prize

31.08.2006 | Off Court

A one-on-one hour of tennis with Roger is the top prize in an Australian children's charity auction for the Humpty Dumpty foundation on Saturday. He has agreed to donate his time to the charity which raises money for medical equipment for a series of children's hospitals.


"Roger is always keen to help a good cause," said Tony Roche, Roger's coach and friend. "And helping provide for sick Aussie kids is definitely one of them." Roger is happy to match it with the person with the deepest pockets at Saturday's night's Humpty Dumpty Ball in Sydney.


The prize include an hour's tennis with Roger and Tony Roche as well as two first-class return air tickets to Dubai with Emirates and five nights accommodation at the world's only seven star resort, the Burj Al Arab.


"We're not sure how much someone might be prepared to pay for the opportunity," said Humpty Dumpty Foundation chairman Paul Francis. "But we're hopeful of a six-figure sum." Interested bidders can make phone bids for the top prize.


The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a non-profit organisation formed in 1996 to purchase medical equipment for children's hospitals.

I have a suggestion... let's write Oprah and request her to invite Roger to be his guest... I think Roger deserves to be in her show not only because of his accomplishments in the field of tennis but also because of his being a great humanitarian... To al
