    Unfortunately, my CPA (not my wife) says that this is logistically nearly impossible.

    Sorry :(

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Great stuff. I'd join in but I'd never get to use that bag, such a pity.

    Is there a link somewhere for us poor people who would like to contribute to the Ronald McDonald House but are not up to the rigors of the auctions?

    It was a personal experience with one of these families (the boy is well and growing up now. Probably an annoying tween at this point) that showed how great is this organization.

    Always good to hear from one of our senior-most members. You may either donate to [email protected], using a personal payment, with the subject line: "Donation, Ronald McDonald House Holiday Drive", or look at www.rmhc.org, to see how to donate directly. I think that the important thing is that we get the money to the charity without going through a middleman, who usually take 10%+ of the donation for overhead. We will be giving over 100% of the auction proceeds and other donations directly to the organization.

    We have a lot of auctions. Not all are in right now, but in the coming days, you can look forward to a beautiful Urushi lacquered Globetrotter briefcase from Bespoke England, a custom briefcase from Neo Nouveau, a new model, customized briefcase from @JP Marcellino , a MTM Southwick jacket and a pocket square from @Epaulet , Tweed jackets and a pocket square from @Kent Wang , Alden Chukkas from Need Supply (@DavidRVA ), A Bejamin suit or Sportjacket (winner's choice) from @eHaberdasher , a full sportsjacket, sweater, tie, and pocketsquare set from @darkmatter7 of Nsuited, and a MTO pair of non-exotic St, Crispins from @LeatherSOUL Hawaii. We are getting more donations in as we speak! From here, all auctions will be 24 hours!

    For some health reasons, I can't be here as much as I'd like, but I'll be able to check in occasionally! @unbelragazzo will be the MC, and he should be able to answer nearly all your questions.

    Please give generously and bid expansively.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    And that all sounded great, exciting, even impressive up until...

    Went off the charts. Fuck. I'm putting the kids on eBay.




    P.S. Get well soon x

    Less than 24 hours to go on this auction, guys. Think about how awesome it would be to:

    Change someone's life with a donation of $1100...$1150...$1200....even $1500...

    AND

    Get this beautiful sold-out bag:

    AND

    your pick of a Drake's scarf from No Man Walks Alone. Like maybe this one:

    Or this one:

    And here was I hoping that no-one had noticed that one on the end and would be all auctioned out by the time it came up, leaving me to grab the spoils with less opposition.

    Ah well, better for charity this way!
