Gilda's Club Worldwide auction - golf stuff up for bid

Gilda's Club Worldwide is auctioning off items on ebay to raise money that will help support people living with cancer. That's Gilda's Club as in Gilda Radner, the hilarious actress and comedienne best known for her funny business in the first cast of Saturday Night Live. Gilda was taken early by ovarian cancer in 1989.

The auction includes golf items such as passes to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and World Woods Golf Club. It looks like the big ticket item of a vacation package to the 2007 US Open with behind-the-scenes privileges courtesy of The Golf Channel has already closed, but there is still time to get bids in on many other items. Here is the e-bay link to the Gilda's Club Auction site.

The Gilda's Club Mission

"The mission of Gilda's Club is to provide meeting places where men, women and children living with cancer and their families and friends join with others to build emotional and social support as a supplement to medical care. Free of charge and nonprofit, Gilda's Club offers support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social events in a nonresidential, homelike setting."

And Elizabeth Berkley has something to do with it as well. Far from her teen queen period from Saved by the Bell or lascivious stripper character in Showgirls, she is now applying her image and name recognition to help this charitable cause.

Since I don't blog about Natalie Gulbis bikini shots and calendars or other such sexy-golfer related hit generators catering to the perverted Michele Wie upskirt crowd, I was tempted to put up the stripper photos of Elizabeth Berkley while I had the chance. However, due to the nature of the post and the cause and what she's trying to do, I opted instead to do the right thing and use this more respectable photo.

Next post.
