Instead of cheers and screams for the pirate basketball teams, the call of the auctioneer filled Minges Colliseum at East Carolina University Saturday night.
And this was a unique auction. Not only were items up for sale, but so were people, particularly the ECU coaches. Billy Godwin, Skip Holtz, and Ricky Stokes, all in attendance to try and help the Pirate Club raise needed dollars for scholarship athletes. Its an event that has been going on for years, because its a great cause, but also a ton of fun.
Our own Heather King was on hand for the bidding. The auction had hundreds of items up for sale, Items donated to the Pirate Club by local vendors, vendors Pirate Club officials are extremely grateful to.
