A group of WTA stars is helping support the 12th annual StarCards charity auction, which has benefited the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity since 2002.

I'm honored to be part of this effort," said 2014 StarCards official celebrity supporter Ana Ivanovic. "They do a great job raising funds for these charities and I hope to do my part to help them this year."

The WTA has donated to the auction signed photographs of Ivanovic, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Victoria Azarenka, Laura Robson, Caroline Wozniacki, Li Na and Petra Kvitova, among others.

The auction will be held at www.starcards.org starting Thursday and continuing through the final 10 days of Wimbledon, which wraps up on July 6.

"We are extremely grateful to Ana and the WTA, who have helped us raise over £90,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, who need to raise £50 million every year to help keep the magic alive and redevelop the hospital," said Paul Brett of StarCards.

Great Ormond Street Hospital in London provides world class specialist pediatric care, research, training and education, and a continued commitment to sick children for generations to come. In addition to supporting the hospital, StarCards now also benefits The Supporters Club, BT Sport charity partnership, which uses the power of sport to help disadvantaged young people in the UK and around the world.
