NEW YORK – Leading impact marketplace Charitybuzz is hosting a special football memorabilia charity auction on February 11 on the LiveAuctioneers platform. Absentee bidding has begun, and the event will culminate with an exciting, live virtual auction conducted by world-renowned charity auctioneer CK Swett. Live-auction start time is 12 noon EST.
To celebrate the Super Bowl and the conclusion of an unprecedented football season, the Charitybuzz auction is offering exclusive, quality memorabilia including:
- Autographed, full-size football helmets from Christian McCaffrey, DK Metcalf and others
- Game-action photos autographed by stars like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Travis Kelce and Josh Allen
- Signed, authentic pro-style jerseys
- 1972 Miami Dolphins team-signed helmet
Funds raised from this football memorabilia auction will support nonprofit youth programming. As nonprofit organizations continue to face fundraising challenges as well as increased demand for services, Charitybuzz has helped unlock vital, new, unrestricted funds to generate impact across issue areas.
“Our mission at Charitybuzz is to drive as much impact as possible by bringing customers the most incredible experiences and highest quality items,” said Charitybuzz President Ben Erwin. “We know the LiveAuctioneers community will love this football auction and we’re excited to bring them the best collectibles now and in the future.”
