    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Top-ranked Iga Swiatek will host a charity tennis event next month in her home country of Poland to raise funds for children and teenagers impacted by the war in Ukraine. The event in Krakow on July 23 will feature a mixed doubles exhibition match and Ukraine soccer great Andriy Shevchenko will be a special guest. “I hope that we can see each other in large numbers in TAURON Arena Krakow and in front of the television to show the strength of sport when it unites us in helping and gives us at least a little joy,” Swiatek said Wednesday on her social media accounts.

    Barry called for her Democrat opponent to condemn the vandalism, and he did. "No 'progressive' does our cause any good with actions like this or the similar attempted Molotov cocktail at an anti-gay organization’s office in Madison. Whoever did this should be punished under the law," tweeted Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.). The vandalism did not stop the event, but Barry did move its location to an undisclosed location.
    Former NFL player Jack Brewer is threatening MSNBC host Joy Reid with potential legal action after she said the participation of young kids from Brewer’s charity in a political photo-op was “tantamount to child abuse.” The photos that triggered Reid included the kids at an event where Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was signing a bill targeting Critical Race Theory. Reid was particularly offended by the fact that the children were Black, saying DeSantis was using them as political props, but also admitting she did not know the backstory of why they were involved. This mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse. I would really like to hear the back-story on who these kids were and how they wound up at a DeSantis event. Given how anti-Black DeSantis is, using Black children this way is extra sick. https://t.co/FUyS5GDNMw — Joy-Ann (Pro-Democracy) Reid ????

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A University of Tennessee fraternity used baseball coach Tony Vitello’s suspension for chest-bumping an umpire as a chance to raise money Wednesday for an organization serving active military members and veterans. Vitello offered a chest bump to anyone who had $2 to donate to the Wounded Warriors Project. The popular coach already was scheduled to appear at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon event on campus where participants could throw at a dunk tank as well. “After what transpired last weekend, we thought it would be kind of a funny gag if he gave some chest bumps to students,” said fraternity chapter secretary and event organizer Gerard Tavoleti. “He thought it was a funny little gag, so he obliged to our request.” The NCAA suspended Vitello for four games for chest-bumping third-base umpire Jeffrey Macias during a confrontation in the first inning of the Vols’ game against Alabama last Saturday. Vitello will return to the dugout Sunday at Florida. Vitello chest-bumped about 10 students during the 10-20 minutes he was at the event and successfully dunked...

    NEWRY, Maine (AP) — Santa is back to “sleighing” it on the ski slope. More than 230 skiing and snowboarding Kris Kringles took to a western Maine resort on Sunday to raise money for charity. The jolly ol’ St. Nicks took a break last year because of the global pandemic. But they returned to kick off the ski season in full holiday garb, including white beards, red hats and red outfits. A sea of red Santa suits descended the mountain, carving wide turns as their beards fluttered in the icy wind. At least one green-costumed Grinch snuck his way into the mix, disguised in Santa’s coat and hat. The event took place in the western Maine town of Newry, home to the Sunday River Ski Resort, the state’s busiest. Before dashing through the snow, the Santas must all donate a minimum of $20, which helps support local education and recreation programs. The event raised several thousand dollars for the Sunday River Community Fund, a local charity. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may...

    U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) decided to turn a local D.C. Boys & Girls Club into a tool of her relentless attacks against President Joe Biden Thursday morning, after Wednesday's annual Congressional Baseball Game. Every year for the past 112 years (except for 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic) members of Congress have joined together to participate in the national pastime – these days a rare moment of sportsmanship and bipartisanship. And it's all for charity. Since 2017 the four charities that benefit from the game are the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, the Washington Literacy Center, the U.S. Capitol Police Memorial Fund, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. Congresswoman Boebert, a pro-gun extremist who claims to support the police could have supported members of the U.S. Capitol Police in a tweet, but instead she used the Boys and Girls Club as a pedophilic pawn in her QAnon attack against the President. Boebert claims to have dropped her allegiance to the antisemitic pro-Trump conspiracy theory, but her actions speak otherwise. She recently hired a husband and wife team...

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff BRENTWOOD (KDKA) — Police and firefighters battled it out on the baseball field on Saturday to honor the life of a local officer. Mt. Lebanon Police Officer Jerrod Withrow passed away in June after battling colon cancer. On Saturday, the Brentwood Borough Police Department and the Volunteer Fire Company held a charity softball game to raise funds for his family and three children.

    The president of a pro-police nonprofit organization in South Florida slammed Facebook on Thursday over its "mind-boggling" decision to block an advertisement for an upcoming fundraising event intended to benefit the families of officers who died in the line of duty and children in underserved communities.  "I can’t even understand why they would do that," Officer Chris Swinson, president of the Southeast Police Motorcycle Rodeo Committee, told "Fox & Friends First" on Thursday.  Swinson, president of the Southeast Police Motorcycle Rodeo Committee, said that Facebook blocked a post advertising ticket sales for an upcoming raffle of a Harley Davidson motorcycle during a law-enforcement training event, which is open to the public. The raffle happens annually to correspond with an in-person motorcycle event. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the nonprofit is now more heavily relying on online ticket sales this year.  One of the beneficiaries of the proceeds from the raffle is the Boys & Girls Club, Swinson noted.  "Like many other years we have put out a post promoting our raffle using the social media outlets Facebook and Instagram, and we posted a raffle for...

    TC Energy wants Biden administration to pay it $15 billion for blocking the Keystone XL pipeline The Downsides of Retirement That Nobody Talks About The RWQuarantunes “Pandemic phenomenon” isn’t enough to accurately describe what WME partner Richard Weitz and his 18-year-old daughter, Demi, created with RWQuarantunes. What started in March 2020 as a Zoom experiment from their Beverly Hills kitchen became a go-to virtual event that over the past 15 months has featured hundreds of iconic artists performing for an invite-only audience of industry power players like Bob Iger, Casey Wasserman, Dana Walden, Jennifer Salke and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Along the way, they raised more than $26 million for causes ranging from COVID-19 relief to racial justice.

    Ten Las Vegas Raiders players were fined a total of $165,000 on Monday by the National Football League, including quarterback Derek Carr, for violating coronavirus protocols – not wearing facial coverings – during a charity event last week in Nevada. Tight end Darren Waller was fined $30,000 for hosting the event in Henderson while nine of his teammates each received a $15,000 penalty after they were spotted on video and photographs attending the event without masks, the NFL reported on its website. The fines come after the NFL postponed two games this past weekend due to positive tests for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. The Darren Waller Foundation raised approximately $300,000 for drug and alcohol addiction among young people, but Raiders owner Mark Davis was quoted as saying he was disappointed the reports of the maskless players received more attention than the event or cause. Video appeared on Twitter that showed a maskless Carr tossing footballs into the audience at a crowded event. "We admit we should have kept the masks on," Carr said. Coach Jon Gruden said he addressed...
    The concept of wearing masks continues to escape the Las Vegas Raiders. A total of 10 Raiders players have received fines from the NFL for failure to follow COVID-19 mask protocol at an indoor charity event put on by tight end Darren Waller. Waller received the largest fine, at $30,000. An additional nine players were each fined $15,000: Derek Carr, Jason Witten, Derek Carrier, Zay Jones, Nevin Lawson, Erik Magnuson, Foster Moreau, Nathan Peterman and Hunter Renfrow. The Raiders broke the portion of the NFL’s COVID-19 protocol that prohibits players from attending any event that “violates local and state restrictions.” The city of Henderson fined the DragonRidge Country Club (where the event was held) $2,000 for ignoring the local COVID-19 mandates. The fines come down from the league a day after Las Vegas head coach Jon Gruden failed to consistently follow sideline mask rules in a loss to the Bills. Gruden already earned himself and the Raiders a fine after failure to comply with the rules in Week 2 — those fines totaled $100,000 for Gruden himself and another $250,000 for the...
    Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott flashed his new “Feed me” tattoo in Week 1 of the NFL season.   Elliott, who rushed 22 times for 96 yards and a TD in the opener, is known for celebrating by pretending to use a spoon after rushing for first downs. Now, Elliott is using that brand messaging to help others in a different sport.   Elliott, a bowling fan, collaborated with designer Marcus Rivero as part of the Cowboys’ partnership with Main Event to create several pairs of custom bowling shoes. Elliott was not able to participate in a fundraiser with teammates this summer because of COVID-19.   MORE: NFL picks, predictions for Week 2 So, Main Event will be auctioning those shoes with the proceeds going to the North Texas Food Bank. The shoes feature Elliott’s “Stay Hungry” motto with a spoon and his jersey number. Bids can be made online.   “North Texas Food Bank is an organization I strongly support and when Main Event approached me with this idea of a custom bowling shoe, I couldn’t think of a better way to help raise money than by auctioning off a custom signed pair,”...

    Serbian tennis pro Novak Djokovic defended the massive crowd of 20,000 spectators that showed up for the opening day of his charity tennis tour in Belgrade, saying he’s sticking to the coronavirus guidelines provided by the government. Fans filled the stands at the Adria Tour charity tournament on Friday to watch Djokovic and other top players face off, but the lack of social distancing and face masks among those in attendance raised concerns that event organizers hadn’t taken the necessary precautions. LA GALAXY ‘PARTS WAYS’ WITH ALEKSANDAR KATAI AFTER WIFE’S ‘RACIST AND VIOLENT’ SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS “We have different circumstances and measures, so it’s very difficult to think of international standards,” Djokovic said. “You can also criticize us and say this is maybe dangerous, but it’s not up to me to make the calls about what is right or wrong for health,” he continued. “We are doing what the Serbian government is telling us and hopefully we soon will get back on tour collectively.” The Serbian government recently lifted lockdown restrictions, recommending people stay only 3 feet apart.

    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — There was no social distancing and few among the thousands of fans wore face masks — and Novak Djokovic approved. The fans filled the makeshift stands on Friday at Djokovic’s Belgrade tennis club on the banks of the Danube River for the opening day of his charity tennis tour organized by him and his family. Other top players in attendance included Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov and Jelena Jankovic. The Serbian government recently lifted lockdown restrictions in the coronavirus pandemic, only recommending people stay 1 meter apart. On Wednesday, there was a 20,000-strong crowd for a soccer cup semifinal in Belgrade. At the tennis, Djokovic defended the freedoms of the crowd. “We have different circumstances and measures so it’s very difficult to think of international standards,” he said before the ceremonial opening of his Adria Tour. He said Serbia has “better numbers” compared to other countries regarding coronavirus infections. Serbia has registered more than 12,000 COVID-19 cases and 252 deaths, although the numbers have been rising again since the government lifted most of the...
