Longines Ambassador of Elegance Andre Agassi opens the doors of his campus in Las Vegas to generous donors

Corporate
November 02, 2018

On Thursday, November 1st, students, professors, as well as the eponym founder of the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education were delighted to welcome to the Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus in Las Vegas generous donors from all over the world. The latter’s purchase of the exclusive “Conquest V.H.P. Stefanie Graf & Andre Agassi Foundations” watch sets will help the foundation, which mission is to educate responsible citizen-scholars for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship. The visit was concluded by the presentation of the exclusive watches by Andre Agassi himself to the bidders on the campus.

 

This presentation marked the conclusion of a charity project that started in Paris five months ago. On Saturday 2 June, the prestigious Musée Rodin played host to a sensational Charity Gala Dinner organised by the Swiss watch brand Longines to honour two tennis legends it has been closely involved with for a decade, its Ambassadors of Elegance Stefanie Graf and Andre Agassi. To celebrate this anniversary, Longines created a special watch, numbered and limited to 10 pieces for the men’s version and 10 pieces for the ladies’ version: the “Conquest V.H.P. Stefanie Graf & Andre Agassi Foundations”. As part of the Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” collection, these exceptional timepieces, emblem of generosity, were sold through an online auction from June 2 to July 2.  All proceeds going to Children for Tomorrow and The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, two charities founded by the Ambassadors of Elegance.

 

Longines acquired the first piece numbered 1/10 during the Charity Gala Dinner for its Museum, in Saint-Imier. The other nine sets were acquired by the highest bidders, raising a total amount of 300’000 USD for both foundations. The generous buyers were then personally invited to receive their watches from the hands of either Stefanie Graf or Andre Agassi, during a visit of their respective foundation.

 

This first presentation in Las Vegas by Andre Agassi will be followed by a second ceremony next year in Hamburg, home of Stefanie Graf’s foundation Children for Tomorrow.
