WTA Tour donates $25,000 to USANA’s “Ace Out Hunger” program
On Monday, the WTA Tour announced they contributed $25,000 towards the USANA Health Sciences “Ace Out Hunger” program, a charity that raises money for some of the world’s neediest children.
All of the funds raised by the “Ace Out Hunger” program will go to the Children’s Hunger Fund, a global nonprofit organization fighting hunger in poor nations around the world.
“The WTA players applaud all of USANA’s efforts and support Children’s Hunger Fund, an organization extremely effective at distributing funds and supplies to some of the world’s neediest children. We are glad to be able to make a contribution to assist in the fight to rule out hunger,” said Stacey Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the WTA Tour.
In June 2011, USANA donated $10 for every ace served at a WTA Tour event starting at Wimbledon, through the end of the 2011 season. More than 3,500 aces have been hit at tournaments to date.
“We are thrilled that the WTA has joined us in supporting and raising awareness for this very worthy cause,” said Dan Macuga, USANA Vice President of Marketing, Public Relations and Social Media. “It’s been a great experience partnering with the WTA, an organization that, like USANA, truly values philanthropy.”
