STK Steakhouse and Vault Media Group hosted a celebration of sports legends on Tuesday, July 9 at STK Los Angeles to kick off ESPY week and the summer sports award season.
Guests mixed and mingled with athletes and celebrities, including rapper and actor Ja Rule; Robby Anderson, New York Jets wide receiver; Jamal Adams, New York Jets strong safety; Norm Nixon, former Los Angeles Laker; Davon Godchaux, Miami Dolphins defensive tackle; Eddie George, former Dallas Cowboys running back; Robert Griffith, former Minnesota Vikings strong safety; Kim Glass, Olympic silver medalist volleyball player; Warren Moon, former Houston Oilers quarterback; Rich “Big Daddy” Salgado, former Maryland Terrapins offensive lineman; Jake Olson, Canadian football offensive lineman; Sports Illustrated model Selita Ebanks; “Westwood” actor Adrian Dev; and actress and singer Dez Cleo.
A $7,500 donation was also made during the event to The MVP Foundation (Merging Vets and Players), founded by FOX Sports analyst Jay Glazer. This nonprofit matches combat veterans and former professional athletes together to give them a new team to tackle the transition together, after the uniform comes off.
