Tony Allen and Zach Randolph to host holiday shopping spree

Zach Randolph and Tony Allen

200 Memphis-area children who are part of area Boys & Girls Club to benefit from event

Tony Allen and Zach Randolph are teaming up to provide a Holiday shopping experience to remember for 200 Memphis-area children who participate in surrounding Boys & Girls Clubs today at a Wal-Mart Supercenter. (Note: Participation in this event was by Boys & Girls Club invitation only).

Allen and Randolph’s contributions – combined with donations from the Memphis Grizzlies and the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation – enables the children to participate and purchase needed household items, clothing and holiday gifts during the one-hour shopping spree. Each child that participates will receive a $100 gift card, thanks to the generosity of Allen, Randolph and the event’s partners.

Randolph, now hosting his fourth Holiday shopping spree, and Allen, hosting his second, will tip-off the night by talking to the children about their childhood experiences and visiting with them throughout the evening. The Memphis Grizzlies will be providing transportation for the participants.

This event continues the Memphis Grizzlies Season of Giving, which includes Grizzlies players, coaches, family members and staff teaming with community partners to make a difference in the lives of children and families by hosting several charitable events throughout November and December.

The Memphis-area Boys & Girls Clubs creates opportunities for children through after-school education. They serve more than 7,000 youth ages 6-18 each year by providing the fun experiences and critical guidance needed to build bright futures. Through a variety of academic and recreational programs, the Boys & Girls Clubs empowers members to make productive use of their time and wise decisions in their lives.
