Serena donates time and money to Sophie's Voice

Serena Williams is involved in an auction and all proceeds will benefit Sophie’s Voice Foundation , which advocates for individuals with spina bifida . Serena will give a 30-minute tennis lesson in West Palm Beach , Florida, that includes roundtrip coach airfare for two and one night hotel stay, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

Sophie’s Voice Foundation was founded in 2008) by actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker in honor of their daughter Sophie who was diagnosed with Spina Bifida at birth. The SOPHIE’S VOICE FOUNDATION is a charitable organization supporting family outreach programs, prenatal education and surgical studies for children with Spina Bifida. Currently, the SVF is planning fundraisers across the nation to help finance the Xiao Procedure, a nerve rerouting procedure that could change the lives of Spina Bifida Families everywhere.

Side Note: Prior to their marriage, Boris and Nicole played the beautiful and rather intriguing couple (Terry and Damon) on Showtime's "Soul Food: The Series" (2000 - 2004).
