Ben Simmons offers once-in-a-lifetime fan opportunity to raise money to help feed those in need


Sixers guard Ben Simmons is trying to use his star power to help raise money for food-related charities such as Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

As part of the #AllInChallenge, you can bid on an auction to win courtside seats for you and nine of your friends, plus some extra special perks.

Sitting courtside is cool and all, but how about suiting up with "all Nike gear and play[ing] 5-on-5 at the Wells Fargo [Center], with Ben as the coach of your team and another Sixers player coaching the other team?"

They're also even offering a "pregame drip fit" picture, taken just like you're a member of the team.

In addition to his own auction, which you can bid on here — hope you brought your check book, because bidding starts at $10,000 — Simmons also challenged LeBron James to get involved as well.

This isn't Simmons' only charitable endeavor during the coronavirus pandemic. Simmons also helped organize The Philly Pledge, which is raising money for the PHL COVID-19 Fund as well as Philabundance.

In addition to Simmons, Sixers partner Michael Rubin is offering the "Ultimate Sports Fan Experience" which you can win via raffle. The prize? A Super Bowl experience for you and 20 friends, plus a whopping $100,000 Fanatics gift card. Oh, and tickets to the NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Final, World Series and much more.
