During the charity match, featuring the world No. 1, Iga Swiatek on behalf of the Johnson Family and the New York Jets Foundation, Brick and Jack Johnson presented a check for $100,000 to U24 ambassadors – Elina Svitolina and Andriy Shevchenko. These funds will be directed to support children’s hospitals in Ukraine. The family are heirs to the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson.
Brick and Jack’s grandfather grew up in Ternópil, Ukraine, and immigrated to the US after World War II. He played an essential part in their lives. Now, the Johnson family is here on a mission to help and raise awareness for the Ukrainian people during this tragic time.
Iga Swiatek’s charity matches gathered more than 14,000 spectators. Part of the funds from tickets will be directed to the medical needs of Ukrainian children through UNITED24.
