Score another one for the good guys as another Laker (rather former here) Metta Sandiford-Artest snags $16,000 for charity via the All-In Challenge Initiative.

American Ballet Theater principal dancer Isabella Boylston. 

Metta-Sandford teamed up with Ballet star Isabella Boylston to auction off a one of a kind experience that included a game of HORSE and lunch with the ex-NBA/Laker star Metta-Sandford. Along with those items, fans can also expect to take part in a Ballet Barre class with six of their friends taught by American Ballet Theater principal dancer Isabella Boylston.

On top of alllll that, the fan will receive tickets to at an American Ballet Theatre show with backstage access. Added on top of that is a pair of one-year Equinox Destination Memberships.

Artest-Sandford’s package bidding began at $5,000 and ended Friday night at $16,000.

If you recall, the All-In Challenge was founded by Philadelphia 76ers part-owner Michael Rubin to raise money for COVID-19 relief with all proceeds going to Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen, and No Kid Hungry. 

So far, the All-In Challenge has brought in over $45.8 million for those listed charities.
