Rob Gronkowski and Shaquille O’Neal to Host Virtual Party/Fundraiser for Social Justice
Rob Gronkowski and Shaquille O’Neal are known as two of the biggest entertaining sports figures in the world. Now, the two of them are teaming up together to fight for social justice. Gronk and Shaq will be co-hosting Shaq’s Fun House vs. Gronk Beach, a virtual party that will also serve as a fundraiser.
Shaquille O’Neal and Rob Gronkowski will be competing in a variety of competitions including a game of HORSE and a chicken wing eating contest. This party will not only include competitions but also musical performances by acts such as Steve Aoki, Snoop Dogg, Da Baby, Diplo, and Shaq himself. The party/fundraiser will be live-streamed on platforms such LiveXLive, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Twitch as well as ShaqvsGronk.com on June 27th at 8 PM Eastern for free.
When speaking on this event, Shaq and Gronk had the following to say: “We wanted to do it now with a purpose, and this is a purpose to raise money for great causes, and to raise money for everything that’s going on out there,” said Gronkowski. “So, music, sports, competitions – we just knew that it was a win-win. And on top of it, whenever Shaq and I have the chance to come together and bring other people together – ’cause that’s what we love to do, is bring everyone together, unite everyone together – we just knew it was a no-brainer to do.”
Whenever Shaq wins a competition, donations to the Boys and Girls Club of America will be made. Each time Gronk wins a competition, a donation will be made to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Empowerment Programs. This is a great move by both men to bring light to the social injustice not only in America but across the world. The event is being sponsored by DoorDash who will make a meal donation for every live viewer up to 1.25 million through Feeding America.
All in all, Shaq and Gronk are going to bring the party and have a good time while raising money for great causes towards the future of America.
