Actor Kevin Hart, singers Kane Brown and Quavo are among the entertainers who will participate in the NFL’s Draft-A-Thon live stream that will accompany the draft.
The league will be raising funds for six organizations battling the COVID-19 pandemic that caused the NFL to cancel all draft events in Las Vegas. Instead, the April 23-25 proceedings will be done remotely and virtually.
The Draft-A-Thon will be live-streamed on NFL social and digital platforms and featured in live draft coverage on ABC, ESPN, NFL Network, and ESPN Deportes. Donations now can be made at NFL.com/RELIEF.
Funds raised will help support six national non-profit organizations: American Red Cross; CDC Foundation’s All of Us Combat Coronavirus Campaign; Feeding America; Meals on Wheels America; Salvation Army; and United Way.
Also, all 32 NFL clubs have selected one or more of these organization’s local branches to receive a portion of the funding. The remaining funds will be distributed across the nation and internationally where the needs are greatest.
