To help combat hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic, Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant is joining the #ALLINCHALLENGE and auctioning off a trip to Vegas and a round of golf with him.

So far, several of the Chicago Cubs‘ players have dedicated their time and money to battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Anthony Rizzo’s foundation provided food for nurses working during the pandemic while Kyle Schwarber thanked first responders with some Home Run Inn pizzas. Now, Kris Bryant is getting in on the action, joining the #ALLINCHALLENGE for charity.

Bryant isn’t the first Cub to join the challenge, as Rizzo is also participating. The goal of the challenge is to raise $100 million for various charities like Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, Feeding America, and World Central Kitchen that are fighting food shortages. As such, some celebrities are auctioning off exclusive items and experiences for fans to enjoy.

Bryant announced that he was “all in” in a video on his Instagram page, stating how important it was at this time to help those struggling as a result of the virus. His deal on Fanatics includes three round-trip tickets to Las Vegas for a round of golf with him at the Summit Club and lunch afterward (once the pandemic is all over, of course). The deal also comes with a two-night stay in two rooms at a to be determined hotel on the Las Vegas strip.

Bidding has already started for this unique experience, with the current price at $9,750. Recently, the Cubs themselves also joined the challenge and are offering a chance for a camping trip at Wrigley Field.

Rizzo’s offer, while more expensive, allows fans a complete game experience with him at Wrigley, featuring a behind the scenes tour, game-worn gear, and a meal at Steak 48 after the game, among other things.

The #ALLINCHALLENGE currently has over 170 sweepstakes and auctions going right now featuring athletes and celebrities all across the entertainment world coming together to fight food shortages. Personally, I think it’s a grand gesture, giving not only to the fans who love these celebrities but to those who genuinely need the most support in these uncertain times.

If you want to go “all in” for any of these Chicago Cubs experiences (or any other celebrity experiences for that matter), you can head to the #ALLINCHALLENGE page on Fanatics and place a bid or enter a sweepstake to win. All profits will go to help relieve those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
