Model and television personality Camille Kostek recently chatted with SI Swimsuit to discuss her love of giving back during the holiday season and beyond. She also revealed that charitable work is one of her favorite ways to spend time with her partner of 10 years, four-time Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski. 

“Giving back is actually what brought us together,” Kostek said. “We met at Morgan Memorial Goodwill in Boston in November of 2013 handing out Thanksgiving food baskets to families in need around the holiday. Getting involved in our communities is one of our favorite ways to spend our time off of work. Nothing fills our hearts like making others smile in a time of hardship or helping play our part in spreading awareness or giving back in however we can to bless others in some way.”

The happy couple celebrated a decade together last month, after initially getting together when they were both with the New England Patriots (as a cheerleader and tight end for the team, respectively).

Today, Kostek and Gronkowski are cofounders of Voomerang, a charitable sweepstakes platform that aims to creative positive change in local communities throughout the country. Outside of their own brand, the two can regularly be spotted giving back together. Last month, they visited Boston Children’s Hospital to spend time with children and their families, and in September, the pair did an ice plunge for charity on live television.

Voomerang is currently running a dream vacation sweepstakes to benefit the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation and a luxury sports car campaign to raise money for The Peter Frates Family Foundation. Both contests are currently open for entry through Jan. 1, 2024.
