Ser­ena-au­to­graphed racket up for auc­tion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Dur­ing the an­nual gas­tro­nomic din­ner and auc­tion, named L’EN­VOL, that raises money for La Mai­son AubeLu­miere, a ten­nis racket signed by ten­nis su­per­star Ser­ena Wil­liams will be up for bids. “A per­sonal con­tact of mine works with Ms. Wil­liams and they asked her if she would sign one and, al­though she rarely signs items, she agreed. The racket left Mi­ami this morn­ing, by plane, and should ar­rive here later to­day. We have no idea what it will sell for,” ex­plained Marie Bé­cotte, the gen­eral di­rec­tor of the pal­lia­tive care hospice.

The pro­ceeds of the auc­tion will be used to help fi­nance the func­tion­ing of the hospice which houses, free of charge, people with cancer in the last stages of their lives.

L’EN­VOL will take place on Fri­day, March 28th, at the Sher­brooke Delta. Tick­ets can still be re­served by vis­it­ing the web­site of La Mai­son Aube-Lu­miere or by call­ing 819 821-3120.
