Hear ye, hear ye, a knife raffle for a good cause!

I recently found out that a buddy of mine, Brent, has to have a couple surgeries, along with the accompanying meds, etc. He has no insurance, paid time off, or what have you, it's all coming out of his pocket. I imagine many of you can understand or sympathize with this sort of situation. I'm personally in good shape, physically as well as financially, and what the heck, have some unsold inventory sitting around, so, I decided to raffle a knife off to help him out. The raffle is for the Curly Olive Butcher knife: [link=http://www.radharcknives.com/Brent%27s_Raffle.htm]Brent's Raffle[/link]. Retail on it is $343, tickets are only $5, so we need to get at least $400 in tickets sold. I'll run the auction for one month, May 1st through May 31st, 2009, with the winner to be chosen a couple days after the end of the auction. If we don't raise that much, no one gets the knife, but Brent gets the total proceeds. Assuming we raise at least $400, the lucky winner gets the knife AND Brent gets the proceeds. Either way, all the $ goes to him to help him get through this. Come on folks, pony up, I know you can spare it.
