Cedar Point announces partnership with Lebron James Family Foundation

Posted Tuesday, September 16, 2014 11:11 AM | Contributed by Jeff

From the press release:

Today, Cedar Point announces a joint decision with the LeBron James Family Foundation on a multi-year partnership which includes benefits that go far beyond renaming a coaster.

The highlight of this new partnership will take place next summer when Cedar Point hosts all of the kids who are actively involved in the foundation’s “Wheels for Education” program and Akron I PROMISE Network for a day of fun with their families in the program's annual "I PROMISE Family Reunion" event. Additionally, next spring, Cedar Point will hold a first ride auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the LeBron James Family Foundation.

It wouldn't surprise me if Lebron's PR people write in that matter on purpose.

I never know when a celebrity is writing their own stuff or having their publicity people do it for them. The writing style could be to appease the target audience or to look more authentic. I would like to think that my favorite celebs are writing their own stuff, because that would make me feel closer to them.

Hell, I don't even write most of my own posts.

Having 'people' is expensive.

It *is* expensive to keep a posse fed, clothed, etc.

Which is why I'll NEVER understand how celebrities and athletes get caught with guns, drugs, and the like. Those people that are unofficially "on the payroll" - handling problems with law enforcement (i.e., "here, hold this!") should be their biggest priority.

It's not expensive if you're manipulative enough. My posse is just fine. I pay them in compliments and they respond to people I don't like for me.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

I need to fire my people. They haven't said an interesting thing on my behalf in recent months.

Sorry, sir! Um, I'll try and step it up.

Can I get you anything? Coffee? Bran muffin?

If I've read one of these arguments before, but it was in a different thread, does this one count as a new credit?
