Going... Going... Gone.

Barbra helps to raise $1,900 in exclusive auction to benefit BC/EFA. Here is an email I received from executive director Tom Viola:

Hi, Craig: This is how the "lot" was listed in the Grand Auction brochure of the 21st Annual The Broadway Flea Market.

The bidding started at $200 and moved along very quickly amongst a number of folks until about $1,500 when it really came down to 2 people - each determined to win - ending with a $1,900 winning bid - which was the highest bid of the day for any item(s) signed by one individual star. The "Pearl Earring" canvas by Steve Shapiro and included in this lot by Scott Alexander in Marty Erlichman's office is gorgeous.

Much thanks to Richard Jay-Alexander who directed Barbra's European tour and very generously asked Barbra to sign the materials - and, of course, to Barbra for all her enthusiastic and generous support of BC/EFA on-going efforts.

Whenever Barbra sends BC/EFA something as special as this "lot' - which she has done a number of times - I get a kick out seeing all of that and of the memory of listening to the album of STONEY END endlessly as a 16 year old kid in Pittsburgh. (Yes, and I do now have the CD and still listen to it and much more.)
