Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 1, 2008
Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment has teamed up with Global Surroundings to introduce their high-end, eco-friendly teak furniture at the 22nd Annual Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Celebration in Phoenix, Ariz.
On Saturday, February 2, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00p.m, the Desert Botanical Garden will be home to one of the most anticipated Super Bowl celebrations of the football season--the 22nd Annual Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party. This event will combine an environmentally-friendly theme and a sustainable cause with an A-list celebrity crowd and high-energy entertainment.
"Leigh Steinberg Sports holds an annual Super Bowl celebration that is highly regarded as one of the premier events during the Super Bowl festivities," said JL Jackson, co-owner of Global Surroundings. "He is pioneering the convergence of sports and environmental initiatives. His party is the perfect venue to introduce The Mark Suess Collections of eco-friendly reclaimed teak furniture to the world."
"Integrating the 'going green' theme for our event is giving us the opportunity to send a socially-conscious message to a very influential audience and creating an awareness campaign for others to follow," said Steinberg.
"We are pleased that Global Surroundings will be displaying their outdoor furniture on the grounds of the Desert Botanical Garden for the Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Celebration", said Solange Whitehead, Executive Director of the Environmental Fund for Arizona and co-beneficiary of the gathering.
"Their message blends well with the green, sustainable theme of the celebration, and it is very beautiful furniture", said Whitehead.
Leigh Steinberg, a noted environmentalist, is using his annual event as a platform to promote environmentalism through sports and showcase sustainable practices and technologies. "Sports provide a powerful forum to shape public awareness and attitudes toward the threat of global warming and the need for sustainable behaviors," said Steinberg. "Athletes are powerful role models and green franchises and the facilities they play in can serve as powerful teaching tools to raise public awareness."
Considered the premiere Super Bowl celebration, the Leigh Steinberg event is the longest-running social event at the Super Bowl and annually hosts between 1,500-2,500 guests, including: athletes, celebrities, professional sports team owners, Fortune 500 CEOs, business and community leaders.
"We are excited to partner with the Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Celebration," said Jackson. The Super Bowl is the most visible sporting event in America and we believe showcasing our eco-friendly furniture at this prestigious celebration is the perfect venue to promote sustainable living through professional sports."
