For a very specific group of high schoolers, the chance to play catch with football legend Brett Favre was recently put up for grabs in a charity auction. The only catch is, you have to live in the Sumrall area of Mississippi to participate.
The auction, which was valued at $10,000, is already closed, according to CharityBuzz.com, so apparently Favre has some sway down in the delta. The site lists the terms and conditions as:
“Valid for the Sumrall, Mississippi area only. To be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon date. Based upon availability. Expires 1 year from the close of auction. Winning bidder and guest(s) subject to security screening. Cannot be resold or re-auctioned. Travel and accommodations are not included.”
All the proceeds from the auction benefit the RFK Center For Justice And Human Rights. No information is given as to why the auction was available only to residents of that particular area and the winner has not yet been announced.
