October 21, 2011 | 12:08 pm

The World Affairs Council is presenting Bob and Mike Bryan, the tennis-playing twins from Camarillo, with its Global Humanitarian Award on Friday night at Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo.
The Bryan brothers, the world's winningest-ever professional doubles team, also play in a band that will perform Friday. Tickets are $125 per seat and will benefit the Bryans' own charity.
On Saturday at the Malibu Racquet Club, pro Trey Waltke will host the Bryan Bros. Jam Fest, where there will be exhibition tennis beginning at 2 p.m. followed by an outdoor concert at 6 p.m. Tickets are $195.

And Sunday at Spanish Hills there will be wine tasting and tennis. America's top-ranked male player, Mardy Fish, along with former doubles stars Ken Flach, Rick Leach and Tracy Austin will participate in the pro-am and exhibition doubles.
All proceeds from the weekend go to the Bryan Bros. Foundation, which funds Ventura County Junior Tennis Assoc. and Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons.
