I'm excited that next week on my daily radio show in Portland I will be auctioning off a one-of-a-kind pair of Air Jordans autographed by Michael Jordan and legendary designer Tinker Hatfield.
I am a Board Member of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon and SW Washington and am passionate about the charity that serves as a home away from home for so many families who have a child who is hospitalized and want to be close to their child's medical care.
Check out all of the details below. It would be great if you consider making a bid when we open the bidding on Monday, December 5th.
Auction for Autographed Air Jordans Benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities
One-of-a-kind sneakers feature signatures from NBA legend and Nike designer
Portland, OR - There are two geniuses behind the Air Jordan brand, but only one set of sneakers that the pair have signed together. Of course one of these figures is Michael Jordan – NBA Champion, All-Star and icon. The other is Tinker Hatfield, the legendary Nike designer who defined the Air Jordan brand. Every year for more than two decades this duo have teamed together to create a new pair of sneakers – in the process becoming friends and collaborators, while revolutionizing the athletic apparel industry.
Two years ago, Hatfield made a special request for Jordan to autograph, and then donate a pair of 25th Anniversary Air Jordan sneakers from his own personal stock of shoes. Hatfield then co-signed the sneakers, and gave them to Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Oregon and Southwest Washington (RMHC®) to help the charity celebrate its own 25th Anniversary that year.
Now, the public can bid on this collector-quality pair of Air Jordans – the only pair of its kind in the world bearing the signatures of both Jordan and Hatfield. RMHC has partnered with sports radio station 750 AM The Game and host Brian Berger to hold an online auction for the sneakers during the week of December 5-9. The charity hopes to raise at least $5,000 from auctioning the shoes, which have already received national interest from sneaker collectors and industry bloggers. All the proceeds from the Auction will benefit families staying at Portland’s two Ronald McDonald Houses.
