July 11 online event will benefit Rise Above Disorder

Wiz Khalifa is teaming with the Pittsburgh Knights esports team and the Atlanta-based charity fundraising platform Softgiving for a livestream July 11.

The “Wiz and Friends Charity Livestream” will benefit Rise Above the Disorder, which provides mental health services to people of color.

Khalifa is a strategic partner for the Knights and will be the featured personality for the philanthropic initiatives by the team.

For the July 11 event, the “Sucker for Pain” rapper – a Pittsburgh native - will be joined by Twitch streamer Austin (formerly “RajjPatel”), as well as members of Khalifa’s artist collective, Taylor Gang. Fans can donate now and register at wizandfriends.com for a chance to play with Khalifa during the livestream (two winners will be chosen).
