Lineup Announced for Agassi Foundation Benefit

Artists and comedians from across a wide spectrum will highlight this year’s Andre Agassi Foundation for Education benefit.

Michael Bublé, Jimmy Kimmel, Martina McBride, Smokey Robinson and Train will headline the 16th Grand Slam for Children benefit concert Saturday, October 29 at Wynn Las Vegas. The event supports the Foundation’s efforts to transform education and benefits the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a tuition-free, K-12 public charter school in Las Vegas.

"It's amazing what can be accomplished when people come together to change lives and make the world a better place for children," Agassi said.

Dedicated to transforming and elevating education, the Foundation opened Agassi Prep in 2001. In 2009, the public charter school graduated its first senior class with 100 percent of graduates accepted into college, as were the graduates in the classes of 2010 and 2011.

Since 1995, the Grand Slam has raised nearly $92 million, including $8.5 million from the 15th event, to support a movement that’s improving education.

Additional talent, who will be announced prior to the Oct. 29 event, will join Michael Bublé, Jimmy Kimmel, Martina McBride, Smokey Robinson and Train.

The evening will include a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, live auction and benefit concert. Sponsorships for the Grand Slam are still available at the following levels: Silver $10,000, Gold $17,500, Platinum $40,000, and Diamond $85,000.
