Charles Barkley appeared on The Price Is Right on Thursday for the long-running game show’s Celebrity Charity Week, joining such luminaries as Sharon Osbourne, Demi Lovato, Drew and Nick Lachey and NeNe Leakes. The celeb contestants raised more than $300,000 for their respective causes.

Barkley, who turned 50 yesterday, ended up winning $67,633 for The Mustard Seed School in Sacramento, Calif., just short of the individual record set last year by Snoop Dogg, who raised $72,585 for the Snoop Youth Football League.



Watch as Barkley ignores the crowd and underbids on a DVD copy of Look Who’s Talking Now — a film in which he cameoed — before faring better on bids for a pair of Nike Air Max Barkley’s ($140) and Kenny Smith’s 1988 Fleer basketball card ($1.50).
