SQUAD STREAM WITH FAZE BANKS, FAZE NATE HILL & SPECIAL GUESTS ADIN ROSS, MIKE MAJLIK & MORE TO TAKE PLACE ON JUNE 17TH AT 2PM PT
FaZe Clan has partnered with Seth Rogen & Lauren Miller Rogen’s charity HFC for a livestream event where Seth Rogen will stream alongside FaZe Clan members with one call to action: raise awareness and money for Alzheimer’s care, support, and brain health education. The stream, which will feature Rogen taking on FaZe Banks, FaZe Nate Hill and special guests like Adin Ross and Mike Majlik, is set to take place on June 17th at 2pm PT. Fans can either watch Rogen stream live from the FaZe Clan Twitch channel or check out other participating talent’s livestreams. To donate or purchase official event merchandise with proceeds going directly to HFC’s care and support programing, visit the “Gaming To Fight Alzheimer’s” Tiltify page HERE.
The FaZe Clan x HFC livestream event was brokered by strategic advisory Brand Knew and stems from a shared desire to raise awareness and open a dialogue around Alzheimer’s. The stream will kick off with Rogen and Nate Hill playing Rocket League, followed by Rogen gaming alongside FaZe Banks and special guests, all while educating the audience on the importance of living a brain healthy lifestyle. HFC has done incredible work in raising awareness for Alzheimer’s funding prevention research and supporting family caregivers.
“I can’t wait to join forces with Faze Clan to have some fun and to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and the importance of brain health,” says Seth Rogen.
FaZe Clan recently made waves in the Rocket League and gaming communities by announcing the acquisition of popular team, The Peeps. Also set to join the livestream will be special guest SunlessKhan, one of the most well-known Rocket League content creators.
FaZe Clan continues to find innovative ways to give back and shed light on causes that are important. In March of 2020, FaZe participated in Verizon’s Pay it Forward Live series in support of small businesses affected by COVID-19. In response to the pandemic, FaZe Clan hosted the #Fight2Fund series, a Call of Duty: Warzone pro-am tournament that raised over $125,000 for those affected by COVID-19. Last summer FaZe Clan also teamed up with Gamers.Vote and When We All Vote for a “FaZe Up and Vote” social campaign, which helped over 1000 people in the gaming community register to vote in the 2020 US election.
This Thursday’s livestream event comes on the heels of a historic week for FaZe Clan. Last Thursday, FaZe made history as the first gaming organization to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. Days later, FaZe Jarvis achieved the only knock-out during the “Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms” boxing match, further expanding the organization’s presence in the traditional sports scene. Fans can watch part II of FaZe Clan’s official documentary “Road to Fight Night ft. FaZe Jarvis” on FaZe’s YouTube Channel this afternoon.
