On Saturday, 23rd November, Elina Svitolina hosted her first charity event to raise funds for the Elina Svitolina Foundation. Organized by Top Five Management, this spectacular gala dinner took place at the prestigious H Club in Kiev, Ukraine and gathered over 140 participants including numerous VIPs from Ukraine and abroad. Guests were invited to participate in an auction and donate for prestigious lots, such as Rafael Nadal’s racket from Roland Garros 2019, Roger Federer’s shirt from Wimbledon 2019, a dinner with Vladimir Klitschko or a practice session with Elina in Monte Carlo.
The objective of Elina’s foundation is to support tennis development in Ukraine, contributing to building new facilities and financing future champions. Prior to this gala, Elina Svitolina Foundation had set a kids tennis camp in view of identifying 2 girls and 2 boys amongst the most talented Ukrainian young players.
