Queen City residents asked, and Ice Cube and Kevin Hart answered. Proving the power of social media, the Ride Along franchise stars stopped by Charlotte during their recent fan tour following an overwhelming response on social media. While in town, the co-stars showed their holiday spirit by joining forces with Carolina Panthers Cam Newton for his annual “Santa Cam’s Surprise Sleigh” day of giving.
On Tuesday, Dec. 15, 65 Harding University High School football players received an early holiday treat when they were surprised by hometown hero Cam Newton, back-up quarterbacks Joe Webb and Derek Anderson, who entered their weight room with special gear and special guests Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. Together, they announced that the Cam Newton Foundation, with support from Universal’s Ride Along 2, had donated $7,500 to refurbish their weight room.
Naturally, the fellas broke out in celebration. Cube was even snapped hitting the dab with fans. For images from Cam Newton’s “Santa Cam’s Surprise Sleigh” with special guests Hart and Cube, check out the gallery below.
