LONDON, Great Britain - This summer, the WTA and its biggest names have once again lent their support to the StarCards tennis charity auction, raising money for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London.
Celebrating 15 years of fundraising for the GOSH charity, StarCards are auctioning this year’s Ace collection of signed GOSH playing cards. Among this year’s auction lots are signed items from Venus Williams, Johanna Konta, Caroline Wozniacki and more WTA stars.
The WTA has been supporting StarCards since 2002, raising thousands of pounds for the charity.
The annual action aids the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, which 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.
The auction starts on July 6 at www.starcards.org, and finishes on the final day of the Wimbledon Championships on July 16.
