by , Posted on 12th Aug 2016

We are very excited to inform you that, on September 20, 2016, The Novak Djokovic Foundation and friends will hold its fourth charity Gala dinner.

The event will take place at the magnificent Castello Sforzesco in Cortile Delle Armi, Milano, Italy, and will include a red carpet press line and cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner, with a program featuring a performance of the Italian pop trio Il Volo and an exciting live auction.

Co-founder Novak Djokovic and, director and co-founder of Novak Djokovic Foundation, Jelena Djokovic, along with many of their friends from the worlds of film, fashion, aristocracy, business, and international philanthropy, will be in attendance to raise funds and awareness for the children that NDF supports through their work.

The Gala will take place only a few days before the start of Fashion Week and will be followed by two days of the tennis exhibition matches (21-22/09) with stars like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Flavia Pennetta participating.

Our love for tennis, fashion, and giving back to the less fortunate has always been the powerful motivating force behind our success in the past, and we are confident that this time as well, our Milano Gala will prove to be the event not to miss.
