The current bid is $325 by Skip Harouff . The auction ends tonight, 10/21, at 9 pm eastern time.
There are at least $500 worth of chips in the auction now, I need some higher bids.
This is the 2nd FDNY (Fire Department of New York) auction I am conducting for Bob Touts. Skip Harouff was the high bidder of the 1st FDNY auction at $350. Skip, thanks so much.
Bob works in Brooklyn and is donating the auction proceeds for his local firehouse, FDNY Squad 288 and HAZ-MAT 1. They lost 19 of their bravest brothers in the World Trade Center. As with the other auctions, we will add more material as the bids get higher. The winning bidder makes out a check to: Firefighters World Trade Center Fund and mails it to me. I will forward it to the Fund and send the auction lot to the winning bidder. Thanks.
Please let me know if you would like to donate any material to this auction.
Bid early and bid often.
