Shaq designs own milkshare for charity
BOSTON -- You’ve heard of a milk-shake, but what about a milk-Shaq?
It seems like an appropriate name when the frosty treat comes from Boston Celtics star Shaquille O’Neil.
Shaq invited hundreds of kids from the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club to the “millions of milkshakes” store in Culver City.
The Celtics star used his favorite flavors to create a customized shake with the children.
He said he owes a lot to the organization.
“Growing up in the projects, you know my father had specific orders. Go over there, play ball, do your homework, be a leader not a follower, and don’t leave that building until I come get you. It was a place that kept me away from all the negativities,” said Shaq.
Shaq’s milkshake doesn’t have a name yet, but part of the proceeds from the sale of his flavor will go to the Boys and Girls Club in Los Angeles for the next three months.
