What started as a joke, snowballed into an exciting online opportunity to raise money to help cancer research.
I notoriously have had a messy desk over the years. But it's not just my desk. It's under my desk, over my desk, behind my desk. I just accumulate too much stuff!
From hockey sticks, to tap dance shoes, game worn jerseys to bobbleheads, it all must go.
We kidded that I should just get a giant trash bin and clean house, but then the thought of an auction might make more sense, and be more fun.
And that's where we need your help. On Tuesday, May 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., we invite you to join us on the kare11.com home page for a live webcam chat. From there, emcee Dave Schwartz and myself will take your suggestions on what to throw away, and what to auction off.
Then, taking the top items per your recommendation, the Minnesota Swarm will host an online auction, with the money going to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.
So join us and let me know what is more valuable. My Olympic grab bag, or my karate gi. My splintered bat I stole from the Cleveland Indians trash can, or my Emmy award trophy. It's all up to you!
Tune into KARE 11 News Saturday for a look at some of the items that will be up for grabs.
