Hulk Hogan, humanitarian

Hulk Hogan to Receive Humanitarian Award at Global Gaming Expo 2008On Wednesday, November 19, 2008 at 12 noon, Hulk Hogan will be honored by National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr. in conjunction with the Global Gaming Expo 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. He will receive the "Humanitarian Award" for his work on behalf of the "Dreamseekers" Foundation.

Hulk and Dreamseekers have committed to building the non-profit organization in partnership with Indian Country to provide needed assistance to Native American youth and their families.

Hulk Hogan, one of the most successful entertainment personalities and Executive Producer/host of the "Celebrity Championship Wrestling" series on CMT, will participate in the foundation's activities by providing a familiar public face in Indian Country.

The Dreamseekers Foundation hopes to provide a significant amount per annum to tribal nations that face adversities such as poverty, violence and lack of various resources. "We're specifically focusing on efforts to improve healthcare and education for Native youth," said Ernie Stevens Jr., co-founder of the foundation.
Comment:  As usual, I'll be attending G2E to represent PECHANGA.net. I imagine I won't see Hogan receive his award. We rarely get up early enough to see things in the morning. <g>
