Fair Trade Safaris latest addition to Tennis With The Stars Sponsor Lineup

Donation of Safari Package to be Live-Auctioned; Proceeds Benefit Elina Svitolina Foundation

The 6th Annual Tennis With The Stars celebrity exhibition has announced that Fair Trade Safaris has been added to the sponsor lineup. Hosted at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa on March 10th, 2020, the event will benefit the Elina Svitolina Foundation, and is supported by Desert Champions, LLC.

Fair Trade Safaris provides personalized, luxury experiences across Africa, specializing in wildlife photographic safaris, cultural excursions and adventure travel. 100% of the profits from Fair Trade Safaris’ trips and travel packages is donated to wildlife conservation, poverty alleviation, and community uplifting initiatives around the world.

The winner of the live-auctioned package at Tennis With The Stars will have the option to choose between two safari packages – a trip for two either to Tanzania or to South Africa – with all proceeds benefiting the Elina Svitolina Foundation.

“I have been a tennis fan for my entire life; and having grown up in Africa, photographic safaris, wildlife conservation, and philanthropy have been passions of mine from a young age. The opportunity to partner up with Tennis With The Stars and with the Elina Svitolina Foundation is a confluence of all my passions”, said Saurabh Khetrapal, Founder of Fair Trade Safaris. “I would like to congratulate Elina Svitolina, Cliff Drysdale, Tim Stallard, and everyone involved in the upcoming event for all their successes. I look forward to attending Tennis With The Stars, and future collaborations.”

Tennis With The Stars has been hosted at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa for each of the last six years, and has benefitted a number of local and national non-profits. Star players and celebrities have come together to kick off one of the most popular weeks on the tennis calendar, Indian Wells.

The event schedule kicks off Tuesday afternoon with a pro-am featuring eight pro stars alongside amateur players, a king of the court session, meet and greet with the stars and much more. Tickets are available now in limited capacities.

Confirmed players for 2020 include Elina Svitolina, Gael Monfils, Victoria Azarenka, Frances Tiafoe, Reilly Opelka, Marcos Baghdatis, Luke Jensen and Murphy Jensen. The group includes five players ranked in the top 50, former major champions in both singles and doubles, as well as two American rising stars.
