Football Stars Rob Gronkowski & Richard Sherman Get in Holiday Spirit, Team up with Oberto Beef Jerky to Host Ugly Sweater Social Contest

SEATTLE, WA – December 15, 2016 – When it comes to football, All-Pros Rob Gronkowski and Richard Sherman are two of the fiercest competitors in the game today. But this holiday season, rather than competing on the field, they’ll be competing for a bit of a different prize – the best ugly sweater!

Starting today, Thursday, December 15th, Gronkowski and Sherman will team up with Oberto Beef Jerky, the nation's leading all natural jerky brand, to launch the #ObertoUglySweater sweepstakes to find the best ugly sweater. The contest will run online on Oberto’s Facebook page through Sunday, December 18th, in celebration of National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day (Friday, December 16th).

"It was awesome getting to perform on camera with Richard and the Oberto team,” said Rob Gronkowski. “But in the spirit of competition, if you ask me, I would win the #ObertoUglySweater contest without question. However, I’m still looking forward to the challenge from the fans and seeing their best ugly sweaters!”

“For me, I always love seeing the fans in their gear on Sundays and showing their support,” said Richard Sherman. “So it’s awesome that I have the opportunity to now team up with Rob and our Oberto family to help give back through this fun ugly sweater social contest. I can’t wait to see the fans send in their creative, yet ‘ugly’ holiday style!“

To kick-off the contest, Oberto will release a video on their Facebook page today of Gronkowski and Sherman, which features them hanging out in a garage talking about their ugly sweaters, all while eating jerky. To be entered to win, contestants simply need to share a picture of themselves wearing their best ugly sweater in the comments section below the video on Facebook, with the hashtags #ObertoUglySweater and #Sweepstakes. The winners, to be chosen at random, will win the autographed sweaters worn by Gronkowski and Sherman in the video. The video is a part of Oberto’s new digital video series, ‘Gronk & Sherman Talk about Stuff While Eating Jerky,’ that launched earlier this summer.

In support of the holiday season and the #ObertoUglySweater Sweepstakes, Oberto will be donating 20% of all sales they receive from their online shop (shop.oberto.com) from now until the end of the year (December 15th – December 31st) to the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation and Sherman’s Blanket Coverage Foundation. Founded by Rob and his brothers, the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation is an organization dedicated to inspiring and supporting our youth through positive involvement in sports, community activities, education and fitness. Sherman’s Blanket Coverage Foundation was formed to provide students in low-income communities with school supplies and clothing so they can more adequately achieve their goals.
