Shaq, aka DJ Diesel, has shared that he will be donating all proceeds from his Shaq’s Fun House party tomorrow night to the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation, as well as the other victim’s families from Sunday’s tragic accident. The Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation is a public charity dedicated to improving the lives of youth and families in need.
In the statement, Shaq said that part of him wanted to cancel the event, “but in thinking what would Kobe want, what would he do? Kobe would want us to push through and celebrate life. So let’s just do that.” The Fun House show features Diplo, Pitbull, Tiesto, Diddy, and others.
