Donovan Mitchell Offering Courtside Seats, D.O.N. Issue #2s In All-In Challenge
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell is the latest celebrity to take the ALL IN Challenge. The website allinchallenge.com allows users to bid on celebrity prizes with proceeds going to help food for needy communities, as well as communities hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
In an Instagram Live video, Mitchell offered a treasure trove of prizes and explained why the cause was important to him.
“I’ve accepted the ALL IN Challenge, I’m all in,” Mitchell said, “Having the coronavirus this is near and dear to myself.”
“I want to give away four courtside tickets to a Jazz game, a postgame meet-and-greet with myself, game-worn shoes, a game-worn jersey from that game, and more importantly, exclusive access to my first four colorways of my new shoe, and gear.”
Last week, Mitchell announced the release of his second signature shoe, the D.O.N. Issue #2 from Adidas on the NBA 2K Twitter account. The shoes are set to debut in August.
Though Mitchell’s auction has yet to go live, fans can bid on several other items from athletes and celebrities.
While some auctions will go the highest bidder, like dinner with Tom Brady and his game-worn jersey from his debut with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers which is currently trending at $140,000, other contests can be entered with a raffle style drawing.
Tickets can purchased for as low as $10 for a chance to win giveaways from a walk-on role in the next Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio movie, to a rendition of “One Less Lonely Girl” performed by Just Bieber in your own home.
Upon accepting the challenge, Mitchell asked former AAU teammate and current Golden State Warriors forward Eric Paschall, fellow Jazzman Royce O’Neale, and Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma to being auctions of their own.
