Andre Agassi and a superstar lineup of entertainers including Elton John took the stage on September 29, 2001, at the sixth Grand Slam for Children concert fundraiser to benefit at-risk youth organisations in Southern Nevada.

The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation (AACF) raised more than $4.2 million during the weekend benefit that featured a black-tie VIP dinner, live auction and sold-out concert. The benefit -- held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena -- was created in 1994 to offer support and funding to beneficiaries of the AACF.

More than 6,300 fans attended the concert gala that featured performances by Don Henley, Elton John, Tim McGraw, Brian McKnight, Dennis Miller, Ray Romano, Charlotte Church, Josh Groban, Robin Williams and Stevie Wonder. Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster served as the musical coordinator for the sixth year.
