View 115: Silent Auction

There was a silent auction at the 2010 Men’s Basketball Hardwood Club Celebration Dinner for the Syracuse University Orange team last night.  There was signed posters and jerseys of the players both past and present, donated items from local businesses and signed items from pro athletes and sports celebrates.  By far the most interesting item was a signed basketball shoe.  How much would you bid on it?  It was up to $600 at the time I took this photo.  All the money raised from the auction went to the Syracuse University scholarship fund.

An autographed basketball shoe by Syracuse University players went for big money in this year's silent auction to benefit scholarship programs at SU.

I will say the players shoe was signed by two of SU’s best this season.

The shoe went for over $1,000 which should help a future student who is not as priveleged as the players who signed it.  Good luck to Andy, Wes and the rest of the team in this week’s Big East Basketball Tournament!
