Facebook Gaming's #PlayApartTogether COVID-19 relief charity tournament continues, this time with major players from both the NBA and the NFL. Since sports are put on pause for a moment, this is a perfect chance for sports fans and gamers alike to come together and be a part of some good in the world!
The following celebrities will be a part of this week's showcase:
The Facebook Gaming tournament is an online tournament designed to raise money and awareness for COVID-19 relief efforts. Every week thus far has hosted major names to be a part of this initiative with few surprises along the way. This week's is no different and provides a perfect outlet for those missing sports!
“Right now, we’re all wondering what we can do to help and it’s easy to feel disconnected thanks to the very necessary imposed isolation,” said Greenlit Content's CEO, John Benyamine. “Gaming has become a natural respite for many of us, so offering the chance to hook up with fellow gamers online, watch some great talent take part in live matches, and raise money to help ease the burden on our heroic frontline healthcare workers felt like the perfect way to address lots of pressing issues at once, in a fun and social way”.
The PlayApartTogether initiative is being sponsored this week by State Farm and Alienware and will see a price pool of $25,000 for charity. The show begins at 8PM ET today, so don't forget to tune in, hang out, and be a part of something good! You can watch it right here.
