As of this writing, the site has already raised over $70,000 -- and as far as I can tell this auction started just today! This is something other clubs can easily model! And not just County Clubs (although their members may be in a better position to bid at higher levels), but this could work for theaters, schools, restaurants -- and with a little thought can be adapted to help nearly any business! Give it a try!

During the halftime show as the band played, the band leader was handcuffed, tied in a sack
