Eric Lindros and Philadelphia Flyers have announced their participation in Fanatics All In Challenge.
The All In Challenge created by Fanatics founder Michael Rubin, along with Alan Tisch and Gary Vaynerchuk. The challenge is a digital fundraiser to raise as much money as possible to feed those in need. The Flyers are just one of many groups involved in the fundraiser.
Five different charities will be receiving donations once this challenge is over. They include Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, American’s Food Fund, Feeding America, and World Central Kitchen. The All In Challenge has currently raised over $17,000.
To find out more information about these charities and the challenge as a whole, you can visit the All-In Challenge home page on the Fanatics website.
While there, you will see the current sweepstakes and auctions that are ongoing. To this date, there are 88 open sweepstakes and 119 auctions. Some of these include a VIP Super Bowl appearance, a chance for a one day contract with the Mavericks, and most recently, the chance to watch a game with Lindros.
This incredible experience doesn’t just have the opportunity to watch a Flyers game, though. The lucky winner and 11 friends can join Lindros for a skate on the Wells Fargo Center ice and will be able to take shots on net. When it’s time for the game, the winners will sit behind the bench to watch the team warmup. The winner will then take part in a ceremonial puck drop.
Following that, the group will watch the game in a suite with Lindros. Food and beverage services will be made available throughout the night. That’s not where the night ends. The night will end as Lindros and a few special guests will spend some time together in the suite.
And to round things out, the winner will receive a signed jersey and hockey stick to commemorate the night. All the details mentioned above, as well as how you can bid, can be found here.
This wasn’t the only announcement made involving Lindros. He will now be an official ambassador for the team. That means he will be making plenty of appearances for the team. His first, of course, is the Ultimate Game Day Experience being auctioned off.
