You (Yes, You) Can Now Bid On A ‘Spend A Day Partying With Bill Walton’ Package

To raise much-needed operating funds for a cause near and dear to his heart, the Challenged Athletes Foundation, which “buys wheelchairs and prosthetics for people who don’t have arms and/or legs so that they can play in the game of life through sports,” the former NBA great (and let’s be honest here, a completely far out human being) Bill Walton is auctioning off a day at his palatial estate on the edge of Balboa Park in San Diego, Calif. which will feature food, fun and frivolity.

From the auction site (by way of The Fabulous Forum):

Bring your family, your team, your company, your organization—or all of them– for the time of your life that includes everything—and Bill too.

This action packed, fun filled, extravaganza of a lifetime will include sports of all kinds, music, food, entertainment, and everything else that goes on in Bill’s life and all at his long-time home—which is quite the showcase. And as with all things Bill—you just never know where it will lead.

And how. Sounds like a great time for an ever greater cause. The current high bid at the time of the publishing of this post is $7,500 with an estimated value of $100,000. While that may already be a bit too rich for my blood, if there is one thing we have learned about the unique Bill Walton over the years, it’s that he knows how to have a good time, so those with the funds should certainly try and win this thing. I can see it now: sitting there, shooting the breeze with Bill and him saying to you as you crack your next beer, “Throw it down, big man. THROW IT DOWN.”
