A charity raffle in the US has the prize of playing a few seconds with Dallas and shooting a free-kick.
When Mark Cuban was nominated to participate in the All-In Challenge, a charity raffle of experiences with celebrities in the United States to raise funds against COVID-19, it didn’t take long to decide what he was going to offer. “Who hasn’t ever fantasized about feeling like an NBA player for a day?” Thought the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, who immediately set out to make the dream come true during a preseason game.
“The first thing the winner will do is sign an official one-day contract with the Mavs, choose a number and receive our kit with his name on the back,” explained the franchise owner. “Afterward, he will meet with the team, participate in the warm-up wheel and sit on the bench when the game starts.”
Not satisfied with that, Cuban assured that the new signing will not be limited to warming up the chair and will jump onto the court replacing a player from the squad to launch a free kick. “You will be able to hear the entire stands of the American Airlines Center chanting MVP, MVP !! when I go to launch. And, of course, his name will remain in the statistics as a member of our team ”, added the enthusiastic media owner.
Being able to share costumes with Luka Doncic, the star of the Mavericks, is just one of the many experiences brought together by the initiative launched by Michael Rubin, co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers. ” When the world faces a crisis like the current one, we must take a step forward and make a difference,” reflected the businessman, before explaining that the money raised will go to organizations that distribute food in areas affected by the pandemic in the United States. Participation is restricted to residents of the United States and Canada.
