View Full Version : Sunglass Auction. Benefit for Dylan Campbell

06-12-2008, 03:51 PM
OK here's your chance to own an awesome pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses (http://www.truturn.com/costa_del_mar.htm)
while helping out a young kid in need.


On April 15th, Dylan Campbell (relative of Beau aka bcampbe7) was
involved in an accident at the College he attends. He was navigating an
obstacle course for some sort of pre-final exam activities that the
school holds, and came off a 5 foot high wall wrong. He landed on his
back in a way that ruptured a disc. He lay on the ground for a minute or
two and realized that he had better move before another person came over
the wall on top of him. He got to his feet and out of the way and then
had his girlfriend drive him to the emergency room because he knew he
had hurt his back. He waited in the ER for about 2 hours and when they
called him back he could not stand up. He is now paralyzed from his
belly button down. Dylan is 18 years old and is now learning how to live
out of a wheelchair.


This will be a "silent" auction, in the sense that you'll be bidding via private messages to me. Auction ends noon CST June 18th!

Winner will make a check out to the Dylan Campbell Benefit and mail it to me. We'll mail the glasses to you!

You'll be doing something good and you'll get a cool pair of glasses too!
Costa Del Mar Rum Cay, Satin Gunmetal Grey Frames - Blue Mirror Costa400 Glass lenses. (Retail $219.00)

I will periodically update this thread with the current bid (amount only) so you all know where we stand, AND announce the winner (with their permission ONLY)

Beau, did I miss anything?

What an amazing 4th of July.

The turn-out was more than anyone had expected. Right at $40,000, in all, was raised! There wasn't a dry eye when the amount was announced.

Thanks again to everyone who help support this effort. Dylan and his family are going to be able to make their house wheelchair accessible, as well as pay some of the medical bills, because of your help! I can't thank you all enough. :cool:
