SCP Auctions is proud to announce a partnership with former Laker Slava Medvedenko to sell his two championship rings in a spotlight auction open now through August 5, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Ukraine relief efforts.
SCP Auctions will be giving the entire final sale price of both rings, which were won by Medvedenko as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001 and 2002, to his own Fly High Foundation. Fly High’s goal is to support Ukrainian kids by restoring the sports infrastructure of the country’s schools and launching a network of social sports clubs. For more information about Fly High, visit www.flyhigh.fund.
Medvedenko said: “I aspire to give Ukrainian children smiles and faith in the future. That is why I created the Fly High Foundation, which is already helping to rehabilitate children who lost their relatives, homes, or faced bombing or occupation. These children need our support now.”
Medvedenko, a native of the Ukraine, stayed to defend his home country when Russia invaded earlier this year. He has been serving in Ukraine’s territorial defense forces in Kyiv during Russia’s invasion. He is trying to aid the war-torn country in any way that he can, and that’s where the rings come in.
Medvedenko, an NBA champion with the Lakers in 2001 and 2002, is offering each of those rings in a two-item spotlight auction open at SCP Auctions now. The special sale will run through Friday, August 5 th at www.SCPauctions.com. SCP expects the rings will combine to raise at least $100,000 or more for Medvedenko’s cause. “If these championship rings save even one life, it will be an important victory for me,” he said.
