Andre Agassi 13th Grand Slam for Children Gala
The 13th Grand Slam for Children Gala took place on 11 October 2008 in Las Vegas. It was organized by The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation and is an annual event benefiting the Foundation. Millions are raised every year through ticket purchases and auction items. Longines has created a unique, one-of-a-kind The Longines Master Collection Retrograde in 18k rose gold set with diamonds especially for this auction. The numeral 8 on the dial is set with black diamonds symbolising Agassi's 8 Grand Slam victories. Paired with the Retrograde were four tickets to 2009 French Open Roland Garros. This package was auctioned off for a remarkable sum of US dollars 50'020.
