By all accounts, brothers Pau and Marc Gasol are two of the nicest, most genuine players in the league. Need proof? Just take a look at Pau’s Twitter, which is filled with updates about different mission trips with UNICEF or NBA Cares events. The only surprise about the duo recently launching The Gasol Foundation is that it took them until this year to do it. However, the duo have kicked off the Foundation with an amazing opportunity.
Similar to the recent fundraiser hosted by Kobe Bryant, the Gasol brothers, through their new foundation, are giving fans an opportunity to hang out with them, get a little basketball workout in, and enjoy a day in LA.
Those that donate to the foundation, with donations starting at $3, will be entered in a raffle. The winner will be flown out with a friend to Los Angeles. While there, they’ll receive the opportunity to workout with the Gasol brothers, varying from NBA-style drills or even a game of 2 on 2. Following the event, they’ll treat you to lunch on one of their favorite restaurants.
Different levels of donations will earn you different prizing, ranging from an e-card to a video message all the way up to an autographed pair of sneakers. The contest ends on September 13th, with the winner being notified the next day, and the meet-up happening on September 27th. Contestants must be 13 years or older to enter.
