With the 2014 NFL Draft a little over a month away, NY Giants player Mario Manningham wanted to kick things off with a bang. In fact, he was a part of an event that is bound to get sports fans pumped about the upcoming draft activities . On April 3, 2014 at the AMC Loews on 34th Street in New York City, Manningham hosted a VIP Private Screening of Draft Day. The film stars Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner along side Kameron McCollough of NIKE Football Society.
Manningham is no stranger to the Draft. He was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Manningham later signed with the San Francisco 49ers and played two seasons with the team and he recently re-signed with the New York Giants on March 18, 2014.
Before the movie, the crowd buzzed with anticipation to see an exciting story unfold before them and although the film does now open nationwide until Friday, April, 11, 2014, an event such as this is a great example of what is to come for sports fans. The official 2014 NFL Draft is set to begin on May 8 through May 10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
This event was coordinated by Kweisi Gharreau, Principal Partner of kgPR.
