San Antonio Spurs legend David Robinson is the latest member of the NBA community to raise a significant amount of money for COVID-19 relief efforts through the #AllInChallenge.

Robinson auctioned off a “Spurs Game Suite Party” package, which includes the opportunity to watch a San Antonio game at the AT&T Center in a 14-person suite alongside The Admiral. There’s also a meet-and-greet with Tim Duncan, Gregg Popovich and CEO R.C. Buford.

Furthermore, the winning bidder will be able to attend pre-game shootaround and will receive a custom cutting board with a personalized message built by Robinson in his woodworking shop.

Bids opened at $2,500 before rising up to $120,000. Al of the proceeds raised through the #AllInChallenge are distributed to groups working to feed those in need during the pandemic, including Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen, and No Kid Hungry.

“COVID-19 is impacting all of us, and I can see first-hand the need we have to feed the families and the kids that aren’t getting meals in school,” the Spurs great said in his video announcing his challenge. “This is a time to reset and think about our priorities. Let’s all work together to support our communities in need.”

The Hall of Famer was challenged by his Dream Team pal, Magic Johnson.

“In the suite, I’ll share some tips on guarding big men like Shaq and Hakeem, and maybe lessons from the Dream Team,” David Robinson added.

The Spurs icon passed along the challenge to former New York Giants defensive end, Justin Tuck, Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba, and Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
