Celebs got their charity hats on and helped Rock & Reilly’s Sundance Sunday Football party which ended up raising $21,000 for Pencils Of Promise!
Rally.org and Rock & Reilly’s injected the mayhem of Sundance with a dose of charity, hosting a Swag from Sundance drive, attaching a cause to each event and capping it off with a Sunday football party that raised $21K for Pencils of Promise.
Mega manager Scooter Braun, seen above with San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson is often on tour with his super-star roster that includes Justin Bieber, Psy, The Wanted and Carly Rae Jespen, but Sunday, 1/20 he was behind the bar at Rock and Reilly’s Park City during the Baltimore Ravens vs New England Patriots game to help celebrate the popular LA hotspot’s permanent arrival in Park City – and raise money for Pencils of Promise while he was doing it – while wearing a OnePiece Onesie jumpsuit!
During the game social fundraising platform Rally.org used a photo booth to spread the message of Pencils of Promise by emailing people their photos with a link to more information about Pencils of Promise, a non-profit started by Scooter’s brother Adam that “believes every child should have access to quality education. They create schools, programs, and global communities around the common goal of education for all.”
Scooter raised just over $5,000 in tips at his football party for his Sundancing friends. He then matched that number to $10,000, enough to build a classroom in a school. Eager to fund building an entire school, Rock & Reilly’s co-owners offered to throw in $5K if Scooter would match his $5K too – which, of course he did.
