    Is it too soon to insert the Ron Burgundy “that escalated quickly” meme?!

    You could do that.

    And.... $825 takes it at the last moment, it seems. Please email me at [email protected] for details.

    Thank you for your great bids, everyone. We are now up to 1660+825=$2485 for the charity.

    Next item is coming right up.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Auction 4: Five Drakes Ties for Luxeswap, from Luxeswap
    Bidding begins immediately and ends Wednesday, Dec 6, at 8 p.m. PST or 10 minutes after the last bid, whichever comes later.

    Up for bidding is set of 5 ties by Drakes London, that perennial Styleforum favorite, for @SpooPoker at Luxeswap, that other perennial Styleforum favorite.

    These ties will feel simultaneously light and substantial with the satisfaction you’ll get from knowing your money went to a great cause.

    As for all these auctions, 100% of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org), an organization that helps house and feed the families of children who have to travel for medical care. It's an incredibly stressful and emotionally draining time for families, and financial issues associated with loss of time at work, only compound those stresses. The Ronald McDonald Houses do their best to alleviate that stress by providing food and shelter and a home away from home for these families. I know that during this time, there are many worthy charities to support, and we really appreciate your taking part in these charity auctions.

    The retail price for the package of ties is $725! Bidding starts at $360. Minimum bidding increments of $25.

    Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It should be five, as they normally retail for $145 per tie.
