Philanthropic Honoree:

Andy Roddick and the Andy Roddick Foundation

Andy Roddick was nine years old when he realized what he was born to do. It
turns out that one of the greatest tennis players of all time was born not just
to pursue his own passion, but to help others discover theirs. He accomplishes
that mission through the Andy Roddick Foundation, his Austin based nonprofit
working to take the time children spend outside the classroom and
turn it into real opportunities. Through an innovative and acclaimed six-week
summer program, investments in collaborative out-of-school time activities,
and other joint initiatives with key groups throughout the city, the Foundation
is creating new chances for underserved kids to grow in literacy, STEM,
art, and sports. Roddick chose Austin for his philanthropic efforts first and
foremost because to him, it’s always really been home.

Featured Speaker:

Radio and Television Personality Bobby Bones

Bobby Bones has carved out a place for himself in nearly every corner of the
entertainment world. He is the host of the nationally syndicated iHeartRadio
program “The Bobby Bones Show,” which broadcasts to over 185 stations and is the
No. 1 Country morning show with millions of monthly listeners. The award-winning
show is a two-time CMA Award winner, four-time ACM Award winner and earned
Bones the title of youngest-ever inductee into the prestigious National Radio Hall
of Fame. Bones is also a two-time New York Times No. 1 bestselling author, touring
stand-up comedian and philanthropist. We are excited to have Bobby share his story
of resiliency and how he refused to give up despite the challenges he faced growing
up. His mother struggled with addiction and his father abandoned the family when
Bobby was just five. Bobby always saw failure as something to learn from has never
forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him and his passion for
his work in radio that he believed saved him and encouraged him to never give up.
