And the Winner Is....!

Children's Miracle Network, of course. But the winning bidder in the auction for Warren Buffett's Dairy Queen Ukulele appears to be Golden Palace Casino. You've heard of these guys:

Setting the standard in marketing creativity, has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Recently, items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears’ Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner’s Kidney Stone, have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

I'll have to contact them and see if they'd like to let me use this log to make a uke. I bet that uke would go for more than the $28,000 that Golden Casino paid for the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich! Or maybe I'll take ukulele jac's recent suggestion from over on the Flea Market Music Bulletin Board:

So if we are debating the concept of auctioning a uke for charity and hoping that it will be played, what do you think the winning bidder (also for charity) did with William Shatner's kidney stone! LOL

i heard that Duane H. bought it and will carve it into a nut for a Star Trek theme uke. ;)

(This is the Duane H. of which he speaks.)

Mahalo again to Mr. Buffett and everyone who helped send over $11,000 to the Children's Miracle Network.

Hey, it's my birthday. Join the DQ Blizzard Fan Club and have a free 16 oz. Blizzard to celebrate with me!
