Shaquille O’Neal and Rob Gronkowski will make their voices heard for social justice and will be donating to the cause as well.
The former NBA star O’Neal and NFL Star Gronkowski will host a three-hour virtual party as a fundraiser on June 27.
All the proceeds will go to NAACP Empowerment Programs and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. It is a good gesture as many athletes around the country make their voices heard.
O’Neal and Gronkowski are two powerful figures and they have a large platform of fans.
The event, which is called Shaq’s Fun House vs. Gronk Beach virtual party, is a version of Super Bowl parties that they host.
There will be many musical performances on the night and it will be streamed for free on ShaqvsGronk.com.
“We want to be sensitive to people. That’s why we wanted [it] to be labeled as ‘Party with a Purpose,'” O’Neal said.
The event will also feature O’Neal and Gronkowski competing in a series of challenges, including a lip-sync battle, a game of HORSE, jousting and a chicken-wing-eating contest.
O’Neal winning means a donation will be made to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Gronkowski winning means a donation goes to the NAACP Empowerment Programs.
