Austin native and tennis star Andy Roddick will be on the other side of a 155 mph serve Sunday during a roast hosted by the Andy Roddick Foundation.
The Andy Roddick Foundation is hosting a virtual event, "No Love: A Roast of Andy Roddick," at 7 p.m. Oct. 11 to benefit school and summer learning programs for underserved communities in East Austin.
The roast will be hosted by wife Brooklyn Decker, model and actor, and the Andy Roddick Foundation chair Adria Seth with celebrity guests and friends of Roddick: Bobby Bones, Nick Kroll, John Legend, Peyton Manning, Mandy Moore, Kendra Scott, Chrissy Teigen, Tiffany Theissen and Serena Williams.
Andy Roddick founded The Andy Roddick Foundation in 2000 to help communities develop better opportunities for young people. Roddick said since the pandemic, many of the out of school programs formed by the Andy Roddick Foundation had to go virtual which disproportionately affected families who don't have access to reliable internet or devices.
"I'm not sure if I'm ready to take the heat from this roast, but since fundraising has become very challenging with the pandemic, I'm willing to put myself in the fire to support an organization that does such great work for the people of Austin," Roddick said in a statement sent to Austonia.
Decker said she has a lot of experience roasting him on a daily basis.
"We hope that the roast brings people much needed laughs while urging people to donate to the Andy Roddick Foundation," Decker said. `Individual tickets to join the live stream can be found at noloveandyroddick.org for $25. Guests can also purchase a virtual table starting at $5,000 which gives 10 guests access to an exclusive silent auction as well as a party pack for Austin locals with cocktails, wine, and a dinner from McGuire Moorman Hospitality.
