(November 12, 2012) -- ATP World Tour player James Blake, who currently resides (and grew up) in Connecticut, is helping raise money to benefit those affected by Hurricane Sandy. He's auctioning off three of his match jerseys (from Travis Mathew) featuring his autograph along with those of top American tennis stars Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish, and Sam Querrey. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross.
"Seeing the devastation in areas I grew up around is difficult," said Blake. "The people of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut are surely resilient, but there's still room for us all to help. I've selected the Red Cross because it does an amazing job on multiple levels; it provides everything from food and blankets to mental health support for those affected."
Info: The auctions last for seven days. Check out the bids here. More info from James on his website.
