LAS VEGAS, May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Wynn Resorts is going all out for the ALL IN Challenge, the celebrated fundraiser started by Michael Rubin, Founder and Executive Chairman of Fanatics, that is dedicated to fighting food insecurity in the wake of COVID-19. Challenged by Rubin himself, Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox created the most exclusive Wynn Las Vegas VIP package ever produced. To increase donations the package is available as an auction item as well as a sweepstakes item, for two winners in total.
"I accept the ALL IN challenge and I am 'all in' to help defeat food insecurity in America," said Maddox. "Wynn Las Vegas may be closed, but it won't always be, and when it's time to come back, I believe Las Vegas will be bigger, bolder, and more audacious than ever. We're offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Wynn that is an invitation to become Las Vegas royalty."
Wynn's ALL IN package offers a curated collection of the resort's most exclusive luxuries, including some that money can't typically buy. With a private jet for six people to a stay in an invitation-only villa to meeting a Wynn headliner, the lucky winners will make unforgettable memories while helping people in need. One hundred percent of funds raised will go to Meals On Wheels, No Kid Hungry, and America's Food Fund, which is directly benefitting Feeding America and World Central Kitchen.
With more than $38 million raised to date, the ALL IN Challenge is aiming to become the largest digital fundraising movement in history by bringing together preeminent entertainers, athletes, business titans, and more to donate prized possessions or create once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
