It took Ron Artest 10 seasons in the NBA to get a ring. And now, he’s willing to give up for to you, and fly you to L.A. to come pick it up, for $2.
Ron recently announced his “Win My Bling Raffle,” in partnership with Celebrities For Charity to benefit his charity, XCel University.
Join Ron Artest and Xcel University in their efforts to support mental health awareness and treatment for children and you could win Ron Artest’s NBA Championship Ring and an expense paid trip to Los Angeles to meet Ron Artest and enjoy premium seats at an LA Lakers Game.
Winner will receive Ron Artest’s original NBA 2010 Championship Ring.
Winner and a guest will enjoy an expense paid trip to Los Angeles where Ron Artest will present the Winner with his ring and where the Winner and their guest will enjoy premium seats to an LA Lakers Game. The trip includes the following prize items: Two Premium Seats to an LA Lakers Game; Two night hotel accomodations at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills (single room, double occupancy); Round trip coach air transportation from any international airport in the world (as necessary to attend the ring presentation and game, $2,000 maximum); A $1,000 allowance for expenses including meals and ground transportation.
Winner will receive a cash prize in the amount of $13,007.50 to mitigate the Winner’s tax liabiltiy that results from winning the raffle. This prize is withheld and paid, on behalf of the Winner, directly to the IRS ($10,750.00) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($2,257.50)
And all you have to do is buy a minimum of 5 raffle tickets at $2 a pop. Way less than Artest had to do to get it.
He is really serious about turning himself around. That gives us hope for Stephon Marbury.
