G-Eazy Launches Endless Summer Fund, Hosts Inaugural Event in San Francisco: 'The Bay Area Raised Me'
With G-Eazy embarking on his loaded Endless Summer tour earlier this month, the Bay Area native carved out some time to launch his Endless Summer Fund to assist the under-served youth of his hometown. Gerald hosted the initiative's debut event on Friday at San Francisco's Larkin Street Youth Services, where the "No Limit" rapper teamed up with Puma to donate $50,000 to the nonprofit organization.
"The Bay Area raised me and made me everything I am, so it means a lot to me to be able to come home and give back. And although it's one of the most beautiful and popular places to live in in the country, there are still around 1,300 homeless kids sleeping outside every night," the 29-year-old explains. "Larkin Street is one of the oldest and biggest homeless youth centers in the region, so it means everything to be able to help these kids by donating resources."
Young Gerald is finishing up a few more California dates on the Endless Summer tour before trekking across North America. The tour features support from Lil Uzi Vert, Ty Dolla $ign, YBN Nahmir and P-Lo and a set from Murda Beatz. Tickets are still available over at G-Eazy's official website.
