Check Out These Silent Auction Items

I posted about the Dru Aguilar benefit tonight the other day. But I wanted to post again about the amazing lineup his supporters put together for the silent auction, also tonight.

Check this out. I've seen city museums with auctions that didn't have this much good stuff.

BTW here's today's CT article on Aguilar, complete with a disturbing snap of the poor guy standing beside the table saw. Dude, that had to hurt. All of us here at BlogAsheville wish you a speedy recovery and a fast return to work.
