Uplifting the community once again, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum hip-hop superstar Quavo and apparel brand, Legends proudly presented the 2022 annual Huncho Day celebrity charity football game on Saturday April 30, 2022 at FCF Campus at Pullman Yards. Becoming a legendary event in its own right, the yearly game has consistently attracted some of the most recognizable names in sports, music, and entertainment as it benefits various causes. This year, Quavo donated $150,000 to the Tender Foundation.
Jaycina Almond, Founder of Tender Foundation said, “At Tender, we’re bridging the financial gap and providing a safety net for single moms living on the margins here in Atlanta. Our core programming consists of emergency bill pay assistance with rent, utilities, and childcare; providing Grocery store gift cards and operating a diaper bank. Now, with Quavo’s help, we’re able to pilot a new initiative called The Bridge.”
The Bridge is a guaranteed income program founded on the premise that every mother deserves the opportunity to parent without the stress of survival. The Bridge is a step toward establishing equity and disrupting generational poverty for Black women and their families.
Renowned for its star power, this year’s Huncho Day only upped the ante. Tyreek Hill, Quavo, Mecole Hardman, Richie LeCounte, Offset, DK Metcalf, Alvin Kamara, Cam Newton, 2 Chainz, and many more suited up for the big Celebrity Charity Game. The day also included a High School Youth Game (Huncho Team vs. Cam Newton’s Team) and two FCF Evening Games—Evening Game 1 (Shoulda Been Stars vs. Glacier Boyz) and Evening Game 2 (Knights of Degen vs. 8oki). The games streamed live with play-by-play commentary courtesy of Greg Mescall and Ryan Shazier.
In previous years, Huncho Day has played host to everyone from Justin Bieber, Jack Harlow, MGK, and Gucci Mane to Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Terrell Owens, Odell Beckham, Willie McGinest, and more.
Huncho Day remains close to Quavo’s heart. He played quarterback in high school and has found a way to give back to youth in Atlanta with this unforgettable day of sports, education, music, and the arts.
