The Shaquille O’Neal Foundation is gearing up for another star-studded party in the name of charity.

The Shaquille O’Neal Foundation just announced the third installment of their largest fundraising event. Called ‘The Event‘, it is a formal gala that includes a gourmet dinner, live auction, and star-studded entertainment. This year ‘The Event’, presented by Pepsi Stronger Together, will be on October 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

History of the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation.

Founded in 2019 by Shaquille O’Neal, the foundation’s mission is to open doors for underserved youth in our community to help them achieve their full potential. The Shaquille O’Neal Foundation does this in part by partnering with other such organizations. Including the Boys & Girls Club, of which O’Neal is an alumni, and Communities In Schools, where O’Neal currently serves on the National Board of Directors. The foundation helps kids in both Las Vegas at Atlanta.

Ticket and Sponsorship Information.

Tickets to The Event are available and on sale now via AXS.com. Pricing ranges from $50 to $250. That includes the dinner plus a private cocktail reception. There will also be a live auction. Which, according to the foundation website, will include “once in a lifetime packages”. After the auction and dinner will be a night of entertainment.

Sponsorship packages are also available and range from $15,000 to $100,000. Details about ticket options can be found at shaqfoundation.org.

Star-Studded Entertainment.

This year The Event will be hosted by actor and comedian Joel McHale (Community, Santa Clarita Diet). The entertainment will also feature more comedy by Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Ice Age). Musical guests this year include John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Dan + Shay, and DJ PEE .WEE.

This year’s proceeds will, in part, help fund the construction of a new joint facility which will house a Boys & Girls Club and a Communities In Schools Alumni Center in Las Vegas.
