Workout With Bethanie: Help A Great Cause
Bethanie Mattek-Sands

CHARLESTON, SC, USA - Now's your chance to not only spend some quality time with one of the brightest stars of the WTA, but also help out a very good cause. Bethanie Mattek-Sands - known for her aggressive game, her fashion sense and for being one of the most giving players out there - will host a special fan experience next month at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston.

On Day 1 of the two day "Workout With Bethanie Mattek-Sands" experience, you will hit the court with Mattek-Sands as she prepares for the tournament, followed by a private lunch. On Day 2, the day of her first round match at the Premier-level tournament, you will go on court to flip the coin then settle into your seats for the match. Additionally, you will get an autographed racquet.

Proceeds will benefit Charleston's MUSC Children's Hospital, one of the leading children's hospitals in the United States. Click here to place your bid!

"I'm really looking forward to doing this charity event in Charleston and helping the MUSC Children's Hospital," Mattek-Sands said. "The Family Circle Cup is one of my favorite tournaments. I've been going there a long time - it's a great venue and they do a great job there, and this is obviously a really good cause.

"I have to give credit to my husband Justin and the great people at the Family Circle Cup, like Bob Moran and Eleanor Adams, for setting this experience up. And of course Todd Armstrong and Chris Doleman from Chris Doleman Pro Auctions - we're hoping to team up with these auctions on a more regular basis, hopefully weekly during the American summer tournaments this year."

While communities around the world support tennis, when those communities are in need, there's an opportunity - and Mattek-Sands has given back.

"I've always done a lot of charity work - the floods in Tennessee, St. Jude's in Memphis, the floods in Australia... I'm blessed to be able to do what I do. Not everyone's so lucky. I want to help and there are lots of causes to help."

Mattek-Sands has had an impressive career so far in all three disciplines, reaching the Top 30 in singles, No.11 in doubles, and just recently winning her first Grand Slam title in mixed doubles at the Australian Open. She will play Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the first round of Indian Wells this week.
