Green Eggs and Ham!
There's an upcoming auction event that is providing the public the opportunity to bid on 3 original drawings from the one and only Dr. Seuss. The winner of this package will receive original drawings of “A Few Green Eggs and Ham for You,” “Cat in the Hat,” and “One Old Fish.” This package is up for grabs thanks to The Moyer Foundation and their Dream Catchers event on November 11, 2011. Throughout this event The Moyer Foundation will auction off once in a lifetime ‘dreams’ which are catered towards those seeking exclusive opportunities in sports, travel and entertainment. Although the event is physically taking place in New York City, Dr. Seuss enthusiasts across the country can bid for the items online through charitybuzz.com/auctions/themoyerfoundation. Charitybuzz.com will be open for people to place their bids, bid increments, and maximum bids until noon on the day of the event. At the event that evening, a representative from charitybuzz.com will participate in the live auction on behalf of the online bidders. Another opportunity art fan will appreciate is up for auction in The Moyer Foundation’s Super Silent Auction. The auction is offering original artwork of “Snoopy” and “Chuck on the Mound” from Charles Schulz (all artwork signed by Charles Schulz). The Super Silent Auction items are available online prior to the event at their maximum bid price. (http://www.moyerfoundation.org/events/event_dreamcatchers.aspx)
