Serena-autographed racket up for auction
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.
