E-Mails went out today from BroadwayCares/Equity Fights Aids to those on their mailing list. When opened, one of the first pictures seen is of Clay Aiken holding the Sir Robin Bear which is representing Spamalot in the auction.
BC/EFA opened the on-line bidding for all the bears on January 23rd. At this time, only two bears have active bids; the Equus bear has a bid for $650.00 and the Sir Robin Bear has a bid for $1200.00. Last year, the Sir Robin Bear raised $17,000.00 and is rated as the third highest bid in the history of the Bear Auction.
The on-line bidding will continue until February 14th, 2009. There are many beautiful bears and most are autographed by top Broadway stars.
