In the wake of the shocking and tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others on Sunday, ticket prices have skyrocketed for Tuesday’s Lakers-Clippers game.
Per Darren Rovell of The Action Network, the ticket prices for that game — one that figures to be among the more emotional scenes in American Sports this past decade — have risen five times. As a touching gesture of support, StubHub will reportedly donate all the money it makes from the game to the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation.
The foundation is “dedicated to improving the lives of youth and families in need, both domestically and globally.” It does so “by providing financial resources and developing unique programs,” and “strives to strengthen communities through educational and cultural enrichment opportunities,” per its official website.
It’s a fitting way to honor the life of Bryant and his daughter, along with the others whose lives were tragically lost in the accident.
