Buckhead sushi restaurant Umi will host tennis star Rafael Nadal, the 19-time Grand Slam champion and one of the world’s most recognizable athletes, for a charity dinner this Sunday, March 1.

A donation of $6,500 includes a spot at the Sunday evening dinner and an on-court seat for the related Atlanta Challenge Exhibition, a tennis exhibition at Infinite Energy Arena between Nadal and fellow ATP pro Grigor Dimitrov. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit the Rafa Nadal Foundation and the National Tennis Foundation. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the National Tennis Foundation's website.

Known as both an excellent sushi restaurant and as a socialite hotspot, Umi regularly plays host to celebrities who live in or visit the Atlanta area, including other sports luminaries. The late Kobe Bryant dined at Umi in 2014, and the restaurant was featured in the Hollywood Reporter's video series Where Hollywood Eats.

Tickets for the dinner, priced at $6,500 per person or $12,500 per couple, include a meet and greet with both Nadal and Dimitrov, including a photo, and access to the March 2 Atlanta Challenge event 2 with on-court seats and access to the coutside lounge.
