|Does it reach a point were the extraordinary becomes predictable? GoldenPalace.com obviously doesn't believe so as they continue with their remarkable marketing campaign. Their latest bizarre purchase is a ceramic bowl for $7,099 that was decorated by the late comedian Richard Pryor. |
The entire amount spent on the ceramic bowl will go to the Geauga Humane Society, a privately funded, non-profit organization that helps sick, injured, abused, abandoned and surrendered animals.
Pryor donated the bowl to the Humane Society weeks before he died on December 10 at age 65 and he painted a self-portrait inside the bowl and wrote 'Little Black Man in Big White World.'
'We are always ecstatic to be able to help a wonderful cause with our eBay purchases,' said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. 'These types of auctions bring us media attention as well as raise money for a needy cause.'
The bowl joins a list of items that will be going on tour with the casino including the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner's Kidney. GoldenPalace.com has used their items and marketing reach to raise awareness and over $1,000,000 for various charities worldwide.
