Company Wins eBay Auction To Permanently Advertise On Woman's Wheelchair
View the eBay Auction.
In her ongoing battle against Multiple Sclerosis, Ana Torres found a unique eBay auction idea to help make extra money for her family. The eBay-happy Internet casino GoldenPalace.com was there to help, winning the auction for $3000.
With a disabled spouse who is a Gulf War Veteran and three sons, Ana has been finding it difficult to make ends meet. After seeing the opportunity a creative eBay auction can create, she came up with the idea to offer her wheelchair as an advertising billboard to the highest bidder. She has even "pimped out" her wheelchair by adding purple neon lights for better viewing at night.
GoldenPalace.com ended up winning the auction and will be adding their personal brand of artistic marketing to her chair, making it an eye-catching advertising vehicle. The auction has received extensive media coverage and Ana's courage is winning over people everywhere.
"It is our privilege to help out someone as brave as Ana," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "MS is a disease that affects not only the person that has it, but their loved ones as well. We wish her and her family all the best, and we hope that our contribution will make their lives a little better."
GoldenPalace.com has some experience with the debilitating disease, having sponsored Ray Sabbatini and Dennis Rodman in the Running of the Bulls last July. Sabbatini, a man stricken with the disease always dreamed of participating in the Running of the Bulls and appealed to GoldenPalace.com to help make it happen. The casino responded by bringing in Rodman and helping to raise thousands for MS awareness.

oh and Hey found out thru my nuero that I can only on the HEAD, not the arms, legs, or back or belly. The Head is the only spot I can. Strange huh. But oh well guess GP didnt want a unique and rare walking and wheeling billboard. 20% was gonna go to Red Cross but I won't relist unless they ask me to.
Heck I had alot of media call me about the auction, but it already ended.
So you never know.......only my rep can call the shot on this time around....... I am willing but is GP Ready for another baldie especially one wheeling her way around town......
what you think if so , email gp and ask them ......goldengirl
