Anna Wintour loves tennis. She is a regular at the US Open (here is a handy guide to her impeccable courtside outfits), and she has even been known to remove her sunglasses during a good match. So it's not all too surprising that she has chosen to pledge her valuable time - during New York Fashion Week! - to raise money for the United States Tennis Association Foundation.
Yahoo Style reports that the organization is currently holding a charity auction, through the website Charitybuzz, for a prize with an estimated value of $25,000 (the current bid is already $18,500 and there are still 16 days to go). The winner will earn a "meet-and-greet for two" with the editor-in-chief at her One World Trade Center office, as well as a tour of the fashion closet and inside access to one of the magazine's fashion shoots. As if that wasn't enough - this is the prize that keeps on giving - your $25,000 will also get you swag including $1000 worth of Vera Wang, a pair of gold Irene Neuwirth earrings and super fancy blowout. But obviously the personal time you will spend with Anna will be what you will remember for the rest of your life.
