Shaquille O'Neal's Super Bowl Event Proceeds Will Be Donated To Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation

Shaquille O’Neal has announced that his Super Bowl event this weekend will benefit the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation.

After remembering Kobe in a touching speech earlier this week, the basketball player opened up about hosting the sports event in Kobe‘s honor

“Been going back and forth the past couple of days on if I should even have my event in Miami this weekend. Part of me wanted to stay to myself as I reflect what my brother and his family mean to me and my family,” Shaq wrote on Twitter.

He continued, “Kobe would want us to push through and celebrate life. So lets do just that. I’ll be dedicating and donating all my proceeds from Friday nights Fun House to all the families who lost loved ones and to the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation.”

“Together we will celebrate all those who lost their lives in Sundays tragedy. Rip to my brother, my friend and my homie. The Black Mama. Until we meet again.”
