n a city already known for big-name entertainment, the Grand Slam for Children® takes center stage by presenting a star-studded evening at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. Since 1995, this event has raised more than $52 million, and every penny goes directly to benefit underprivileged, abused or at-risk children in the Las Vegas community. All expenses are underwritten so that the maximum amount of funds can go towards local educational and recreational programs aimed to change the lives of these children.

The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation has assembled another superstar line-up of entertainers for an unforgettable evening of music and other entertainment to benefit Las Vegas at-risk youth. Counting Crows, Sarah McLachlan, legendary rocker Phil Collins, a special acoustic performance by John Mayer, and the comedy of Ellen DeGeneres, are among the performers announced so far. Grammy Award-winning producer, arranger and composer David Foster will return for his 11th year as musical director.

For the first time, this year's concert will feature a performance by the winner of the "Grand Slam to Stardom" contest. The semifinal competition for the Grand Slam To Stardom competition was recently held at host site Green Valley Ranch Resort. An audience of more than 500 people, including dozens of family members of contestants, cheered enthusiastically as each of the 12 singers performed one song. That group was then narrowed to six; after each of them performed another song, the three finalists were named.

Congratulations to finalists J.T. Aguirre, 25, Erika Avila, 18, and Josh Keating, 15!

They will travel to Malibu, California, to perform for multi- Grammy Award-winning producer and composer David Foster at his recording studio there. Foster will choose the winner, who will be announced and then perform at the Grand Slam For Children at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on October 7.

Special thanks to the Green Valley Ranch Resort and to judges Clint Holmes, Frankie Scinta, Chrissi Scinta, Carlos Diaz and Alicia Jacobs for a wonderful event.
