Legendary Sports Agent Is 'Going Green' for 22nd Annual Super Bowl Celebration on February 2
Leigh Steinberg Teams Up With Electronic Recyclers International to Host the Only Sustainable Soirée Featuring a Star-Studded Guest List, Green Carpet VIP Entrance
NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2008) - As the swarm of pre-Super Bowl parties
begin taking over the Valley of the Sun, only one event in town will
combine an environmental cause with an A-list celebrity crowd and
high-energy entertainment. On Saturday, February 2, from 2:00p.m. to
5:00p.m, the Desert Botanical Garden will be home to one of the most
anticipated Super Bowl celebrations of the football season -- the 22nd
Annual Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party.
This eco-friendly event will kick off in true 'green' fashion as famed
sports agent Leigh Steinberg and Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon
donate their cell phones and laptops to the E-Waste bins provided by
Electronic Recyclers International, the leading electronic recycling
company that demanufactures and recycles electronic items.
In an effort to help repair the fastest growing solid waste issue in the
world, The E-Waste bins will be available for guests of the party and the
community from 11:00am to 6:00pm to dispose of used laptops or cell phones.
"It's difficult to think about our ecosystem amidst the Super Bowl
celebrations, but the amount of resources used at that time are
dramatically affecting our environment," explains Steinberg. "Integrating
the 'going green' theme for our event is giving us the opportunity to send
a socially-conscious message to a very influential audience and creating an
awareness campaign for others to follow."
The E-Waste bins and 'Green Team' of cheerleaders will be at the start of
the 'Green Carpet' VIP entrance. Once inside the invitation-only event, an
eccentric array of entertainment will be provided throughout the party,
including interactive media games, stilt-walkers and a caricaturist. If
guests are seeking a more mellow vibe, they can rejuvenate in the Massage
Cabana or stimulate their senses at the Oxygen Bar.
The afternoon party will also feature a silent auction to benefit the
Environmental Fund for Arizona and the 'Beating the Odds' Foundation.
In addition to the high-profile guest list filled with celebrities,
professional athletes and business moguls, a group of courageous soldiers
stationed overseas will be attending the party via satellite.
"The Super Bowl consistently attracts a fiercely loyal following of
Americans, no matter where you are at in the world. Even if you aren't a
die-hard football fan, you find yourself wanting to be part of the
celebration," says Steinberg. "We're honored to have the Armed Forces
experience that with us."
The 22nd Annual Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party is an exclusive,
invite-only event. For more information on the party, please email
Leigh Steinberg and executive officers are available for interviews and
hi-res photographs are available upon request. Media inquires can be sent
