Hosting Gaming event at Super Bowl XLVIII

Hank Baskett, III will host the inaugural Celebrity Gaems Pro XP Gaming Event on Saturday, February 1st at the Crowne Plaza Times Square in New York City, host city of Super Bowl XLVIII. Fans will enjoy an afternoon of live gaming with celebrities, athletes, and pro gamers and be able to take away merchandise from this first time event which will be held from 11am – 2pm.


“As a former NFL athlete and lifelong gamer, I always dreamed of an event where athletes, fans and gamers could come together and share a common bond: video gaming. Fans love any chance to interact with their favorite athletes and likewise athletes embrace the opportunity to give back to diehard fans that follow them season to season. When you add video games into the mix, you find a way to creatively bridge the gap and create the ultimate fan vs. athlete experience”. Hank’s partnership with Gaems, Inc. (www.gaemspge.com) for this exciting event will enable The Griffin Gives Foundation to continue to promote their gaming console donation campaign and provide refurbished consoles to veterans and children’s hospitals nationwide.


As a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation, The Griffin Gives Foundation has been committed to making a difference in the lives of others. At its core, the foundation aims to provide support for all ages and in all areas by supporting their mission to give back to veterans, children and those affected by debilitating disease. The foundation was started on behalf of Hank Baskett, III to allow athletes the opportunity to give back to the causes which matter the most to them.


Potential sponsors should contact The Griffin Gives Foundation to be a part of this exciting event and have an opportunity to establish a partnership in the event’s inaugural year. Tickets for this event go on sale Saturday, January 11th at 10am. A portion of the proceeds raised will support their mission.
