Will “King of Clay’ Ferrell & His Tennis Match for Charity
“I’ve been called the Ricky Hatton of tennis-from what I’ve heard- cuz I’m quick and I like to drink a lot.”
Will Ferrell is popping up at charity event so quickly I can barely keep up with him…last weekend the funnyman took on tennis legend Mats Wilander for the K-Swiss Global Tennis Showdown in L.A. to benefit the Swedish School of Los Angeles. All in all, the event raised more than $50,000 for the school…
There are three videos on Youtube from the event…and each has been viewed less than 2000 times. This particular video is great because whoever filmed it laughs contagiously throughout…but the sad thing is, although the event raised a lot of money, it could have raised a lot more. If you watch the video, notice how many empty seats there are. Why? This event cost less than a night out at the movies, and you could have actually met Ferrell, bid on some silent auction items, filled your belly with some delicious barbequed treats and enjoyed a performance by the Dan Band.
If you missed this charity event featuring Will Ferrell, fret not. Ferrell is an all around athletic-talent and will be showcasing his golf skills on the greens for the Cancer for College event this September in San Diego. I’ve gone every year to support the event, which provides scholarships to cancer victims. And every year, Ferrell has gone above and beyond to ensure everyone in attendance gets a little TLC…and seriously, I don’t want to get another email asking me how I get to meet so many celebs- I’ve been pointing you all in the right direction for a long time…and today, I’m pointing all Will Ferrell fans to the Cancer for College website for more info on how you can attend-but you gotta act fast, the event has sold out every year and this year will be no exception. I better see ya there.
As always, thanks for reading. Delinda@athlebrities.com
