A package that included dinner or a workout with Tom Brady after his first home game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as well as tickets to the game, his jersey and his cleats, netted $800,000 when it closed Tuesday night in the All In Challenge.
Brady’s package is the largest so far for the virtual fundraising effort, which has drawn experiences from athletes, celebrities and corporations to raise money for Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, America’s Food Fund, World Central Kitchen and Feeding America.
Several other items closed recently, including $525,000 for 18 holes of golf and dinner for 10 with Super Bowl-winning quarterback Peyton Manning, who will fly to the winner’s city for the event.
