Alex Ovechkin took to Twitter Sunday to accept the ALL IN Challenge and he is auctioning off a pretty incredible experience in support. The ALL IN Challenge is a digital fundraiser by Fanatics that is aimed at combating food insecurity. The idea is to raise money through sweepstakes and auctions with celebrities giving up memorabilia or experiences.
Ovechkin has quite the experience planned for the winner of his auction.

The winner will get four round-trip airfare tickets to Washington and a two-night hotel stay, a 30-minute lesson on shooting one-timers with Ovechkin after a practice, four tickets to the game the following day after the practice, and will be brought down to the locker room after the game to receive an autographed game-used stick.
Sounds awesome, right? Well, if you want to get in on the auction you better bring your checkbook. As of 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, the current bid in the auction was $13,500.
