September 1, 2009, Oradell, NJ - Legendary Tennis star Andre Agassi and artist Tony Capparelli were on hand for a special exhibition match in the Hamptons at the Ross School Tennis Center on Sunday August 30th.

The festivities also featured celebrity matches involving Alec Baldwin, Christie Brinkley and "Real Housewives" star Luann DeLesseps, as well as Petr Korda and Tennis Channel personality Murphy Jensen.

Andre Agassi was honored by the Ross School in East Hampton, for his commitment to the education of underserved children in the Las Vegas area, and beyond. Andre did not play, but interacted with children in the Tennis Program at Ross. Agassi's coach, Nick Bollettieri, held a special clinic for children attending the event.

All were assembled for a special signing of Tony's painting of Andre Agassi. A small select edition of prints was donated to the school as well.
