McHENRY – Sideline Marketing and Sports Memorabilia in McHenry is hosting an auction this week to raise money for a Vietnam veteran in need.
The Woodstock-based man is a paraplegic because of his war experiences, and he needs to complete construction on his home.
He doesn’t have the physical or
financial ability to get the work done without help.
Sideline is hosting an online auction on merchandise through Sunday, with proceeds going toward the project. Items up for bid include jerseys and signed baseballs, hockey pucks and posters.
Interested parties also can donate money or gift cards to Home Depot, Walmart and Menards, Sideline employee Aaron Dullum said.
The goal is to raise $10,000.
“This is part of what we do at Sideline,” Dullum said. “It’s part of our business to do charity events, and we have raised money for all kinds of causes.”
