The charity auction organized by the ACB has already raised 143,000 euros for the fight against the coronavirus, the Spanish League announced on Saturday evening. Other items including shoes signed by Stephen Curry will increase the amount in the coming days.

The #LaMejorAsistencia (The Biggest Help) is aiding the fundraising initiative launched by Pau Gasol and Rafael Nadal. The effort is part of the #CruzRojaResponde (Red Cross Responds).

Basketball players and other athletes donated jerseys, balls, sneakers, and more. Fittingly, Nadal’s t-shirt claimed first place in the list of final prices of the items already sold with 20,500 euros. A Juan Carlos Navarro jersey banked second place with 6,200 euros and Kobe Bryant sneakers third with 6,100 euros.
