The Andy Roddick Foundation, presenting sponsor of USTA Florida’s Bobby Curtis Tennis on the Move (TOTM,) raised more than $1.5 million during the fifth annual Andy Roddick Charity Dream Weekend in December.

Five-time Grammy Award winner Lionel Richie kicked off the weekend with a concert at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena in Hollywood, Florida, where he rocked a full house of fans in order to help Roddick raise money for many children’s charities in South Florida.

"I was a little apprehensive about our turn out this year due to the hurricanes that greatly affected South Florida," Blanche Roddick, Andy's mother and the chairman of the Andy Roddick Foundation said. "And I was amazed at the generosity of our supporters after everything they have been through. Thank you to everyone who was involved and made this a great weekend."
