Pau and Marc Gasol give fans a chance to practice with them

August 20, 2013|By Eric Pincus

For a donation benefiting the Gasol Foundation, Pau and Marc Gasol are offering the chance to win a prize package that includes a game of two-on-two in Los Angeles.

Through the website Prizeo.com, donations start as low as $3 for a single entry.  Larger donations will be rewarded with signed photos or shoes, signed by the Gasol brothers -- along with multiple contest entries.

The grand prize winner (and a friend) will be flown to Los Angeles, provided accommodations and on Sept. 27, will get the chance to participate in a workout, followed by lunch, with the Gasols.

"We are excited about our partnership with Prizeo because one of the best ways to reach and engage with our fans is through social media,” said Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies.  "So it only makes sense that we would use a highly social, online campaign to make our fans aware of our mission with the Gasol Foundation and give them a chance to join us in our work to reduce childhood obesity."

Said Pau Gasol of the Lakers: "We hope to build a community around these critical children’s health issues and our Prizeo campaign is an important first step in reaching out to our fans to start a dialogue which we hope will lead to healthier dietary and exercise decisions in youth.”

The Gasol Foundation, created in 2013, "aims to create a world where all children will enter  adulthood physically and mentally equipped to live successful, healthy and productive lives."

Lakers fan Romina Rosas of Montclair was the winner of Kobe Bryant's Prizeo donation drive, yielding a recent meet and greet with the All-Star guard.
