As a precursor to a gala for the Paradise Children’s Foundation (February 1), the NBA legend signed basketballs for fans while Hoopz showed off her skills on the court in an event staged by the foundation.
The couple arrived with numerous items with they offered up for the gala’s auction. Wendy Ellis, the foundation director spoke about Shaq’s involvement and the purpose of the event saying,
“We thought how great would it be to do something on a really big scale, to have everyone come together from one end of the island to the other, for one night, to raise as much money as we can, not just for one, but for many local children’s charities.”
Also, Shaq tweeted about his new venture with TruTV, a comedy series called “Upload With Shaquille O’Neal” where he and a group of comics will present funny online videos and create a few of their own viral clips. The series is expected in the early part of the year.
