Ron Artest is Raffling Off His First NBA Championship Ring For Charity

SInce the 2010-2011 NBA Season started on October of 2010, Los Angeles Laker Forward Ron Artest have said that he will be raffling off his first NBA Championship ring.

Initially Ron was going to Auction off his NBA Ring but for whatever reason he decided that raffling it out would be better. And thus give everyone of us a chance to own it, instead of selling it off to the highest bidder.

Now for all the details visit Ron's Website: and click on the Photo of the Ring that you want to win and own.

So not only will all this be for a good cause but just imagine what you can own who the likes of NBA Greats Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, John Stockton and even Pistol Pete and many others have played all their lives but didn't get to have.

And not only that, you also have a chance to win an expense paid ticket to Los Angeles, meet with Ron Artest and the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers and win premium seats to a Lakers Game.

Yes, I know what you're thinking, What am I waiting for? right?

So hurry, you only have until Saturday morning December 25, 2010 to grab your raffle tickets and that would be the day it will be raffled off.

Tickets are available at Ron Artest's website and anybody (above 18) can purchase them, and the minimum number of tickets to buy is five.

The price would be US$ 2 per ticket and if you have money to burn you can grab one for a mere 75 cents if you purchase 100 or more raffle tickets. But what the heck, if you''re going to win, you're going to win, even if you only purchase five tickets. You may have a smaller chance compared to those who can afford to buy more but still you have a chance--like anybody else who buys one.

And of course you if you didn't buy a ticket you have no way of winning, do you?

This raffle is hosted by the Celebrities For Charity Foundation.
