On Monday, August 20, in advance of the 2018 U.S. Open, Novak Djokovic hosted a fundraiser for his Novak Djokovic Foundation to help raise funds to provide early childhood education programs in disadvantaged Serbian communities.
The charity event was held at the sales gallery for 565 Broome SoHo, the first residential building in New York City designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano which Djokovic recently purchased a residence within the building.
At the event, Djokovic personally signed the tennis racquet that he used to win the final in Cincinnati on Sunday, a victory that made him the first man to claim all nine Masters events on the ATP Tour. The racquet will be auctioned off alongside his personal, limited edition Seiko watch next month as part of Christie’s “Falling for Time” online watch sale from Sept. 6 – 20. All proceeds from Djokovic’s contribution will benefit the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which provides early childhood education programs in disadvantaged Serbian communities.
"I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to make a difference in my country, and the support of organizations like Bizzi & Partners Development and Christie’s helps make that possible.” said Novak Djokovic
The August 20 fundraiser was hosted by global real estate firm Bizzi & Partners Development, which is developing 565 Broome SoHo along with Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures.
